For centuries, Uzbekistan lay at the crossroads of the trade routes of the Great Silk Road, followed by merchants and pioneers, geographers and missionaries, invaders and conquerors. Today Uzbekistan is an attractive destination for enterprising people interested in culture and history, traditions and exotic countries. Uzbekistan is proud of its architectural monuments, which have been preserved since the time of our ancestors. The Ichan-Kala complex in Khiva as well as the historical centers of Bukhara, Shakhrisabz and Samarkand are on a special UNESCO list – the “World Cultural Heritage”. Unique monuments and architectural constructions in these cities are the reflection of an epoch that has played an important role in the country’s history. Uzbekistan Round Trip, experience the world famous cities of Uzbekistan and Southern Uzbekistan with the historic city of Termez with its mountainous regions. Visit the Buddhist and ancient ruins of the historic city of Termez. Alexander the Great once crossed the Oxus (Amudaryo) here (327 BC).
The traditions and customs of the Uzbek people living at the crossroads of the Great Silk Road have developed over many centuries through the interaction of the rituals of the Zoroastrian, Sogdian, Bactrian and nomadic tribes and under the influence of Islamic traditions.
Over the centuries, the traditions and customs of the people of Uzbekistan have remained largely unchanged despite the desire of numerous invaders to introduce a foreign culture alien to the Uzbeks. The Arabs, who spread the religion of Islam throughout Central Asia, had the greatest influence on the development of the customs and traditions of the Uzbek people. The traditions of Islam were closely intertwined with pre-Islamic beliefs and traditions, with the local culture and were firmly rooted in the everyday life and consciousness of the Uzbek people.
On their Uzbekistan Round Trip, visitors can not only see the architectural jewels of the country, but also take part in the celebration of national holidays. (For example, the New Year in Navruz is a spring festival celebrated on the day of the equinox on March 21).
