Samarkand

3.9

Rome of the East

Uzbekistan’s most glorious city, Samarkand, offers a fine combination of history and modern urban life. A bustling hub on the Silk Road, and home to some of the world's finest Islamic architecture, Samarkand tourism offers a selection of treasures hidden among a great deal of Soviet-era high-rises. The entire old city, which has some of the finest squares in the world, has been protected as a World Heritage Site, with its spectacular architecture including palace complexes and madrasas, mosques and mausoleums. Enjoying a massage at a spa or tasting a hot naan at a bustling bazaar form an unmissable part of any Samarkand intinerary. Samarkand is in Samarqand Province.
