Overlooked by many visitors, it is well worth investing a couple of days of time exploring Tashkent. Whilst it does not have the rich history of Samarkand or Khiva, the wide-avenues, attractive parks and interesting markets are well worth a look in, affording a cosmopolitan contrast to the historical silk road cities.

Rich in Islamic architecture gracing the cities of the old Silk Road, Uzbekistan holidays dazzle with their dramatic mountains, stark deserts and fertile valleys. You won't be disappointed by the blend of Silk Road and Soviet history.

Scrape the surface of Soviet-era architecture in Tashkent to find ancient mausoleums, imposing madrassas and the small Old Town with its narrow winding alleys. In contrast Samarkand positively flaunts its beauty with the glittering blue-mosaic covered mosques and madrassas surrounding Registan Square. Still on the Silk Road, Bukhara boasts a citadel-like Ark, its labyrinthine streets home to mosques and madrassas. Step back in time as you enter the ancient walled city of Khiva, a living museum.

An Uzbekistan holiday isn't just about historic cities though, away from civilisation the Kyzyl Kum Desert is home to nomads and the lush Fergana Valley is surrounded by the Tian Shan and Pamir mountains. Pass through the Soviet-built capital of the Karakalpakstan Republic, Nukus, on your way to intriguing Moynaq. Once a major port on the Aral Sea it now finds itself stranded 100km from the sea with skeletons of ships marooned on the bone-dry sea bed.

Discover Tashkent

Most Uzbekistan holidays are based in its capital, Tashkent, where you will be rewarded with a unique glimpse into the lost world of the orient in one of the oldest cities in the world. Rebuilding has left little of the ancient city, but the small Old Town, with its narrow winding alleys, offers an insight into Tashkent’s Silk Road history. Look past the Soviet-era architecture and you will discover ancient mausoleums and imposing madrassas. Climb up to the observation deck of the TV tower and discover a city that is remarkably green and attractive.
