“It is better to see something once than hear about it a thousand times” goes an old Uzbek proverb, and there’s never been a better time to see Uzbekistan. Nestled within the landlocked countries of Central Asia and overflowing with a cultural narrative that dates back to the 8th century BC, Uzbekistan stands out as a land of exceptional beauty, crisscrossed by mountain ranges and scattered with cities, towns and oases of layered historical significance. One of the most important locations on the 2000-year-old Silk Road that stretched from China in the east to Russia in the west, Uzbekistan is a marvel, home to rugged deserts and great wide rivers, exotic ancient towns and timeless buildings of exquisite beauty.
