Take a city break in Uzbekistan and discover an ancient and elegant land that evokes the long-lost spirit of the Orient. Set on the old Silk Road, this mountainous country that was once a vital keystone in some of the earliest empires is steeped in a history that is both fascinating and breathtaking – manifesting itself in some magnificent architecture and beautifully preserved relics. At first, it may seem an unusual choice for a short break, but Uzbekistan offers a truly unique travel experience that will likely stay with you forever.An Uzbekistan city break will take you to its two-thousand-year-old capital, Tashkent. With a distinct Oriental flavour, Tashkent is a green and picturesque city with its grid of wide boulevards dotted with emerald parks, gardens and fountains. Imposing Soviet monoliths tower over more charming and traditional buildings such as ancient mausoleums and grandiose madrassas, while the cosy Old Town with its labyrinthine alleyways is also well worth exploring. Tashkent is a cosmopolitan city and is bustling with markets and stalls where you can buy myriad traditional Uzbek goods from shimmering silk and handmade rugs to exotic spices and handicrafts.
