Uzbekistan

Uzbekistan, in the heart of Central Asia, is a unique crossroads.

A crossroads of civilizations with the footsteps of great empires: from Alexander the Great to the Czars through Genghis Khan and Tamerlane.

Uzbekistan is also a lifestyle crossroads between nomadic tribes and some of the oldest settled cities in the world.

Uzbekistan is Religions crossroads, with the influences of Buddhism, Christianism and Islam (not to mention the past Shamanism or Mazdaism).

A least, Uzbekistan is a cultural crossroads, throughout the legendary Silk Road that linked China to the West.

Uzbekistan has kept track of each of these facets.

The three legendary cities of Samarkand, Bukhara and Khiva drain each year tens of thousands of tourists eager to place their feet into the footsteps of Marco Polo... But Explorers can also find much to discover, from the Aral sea vestiges to the Afghanistan border, looking in the desert for the ruins of past civilizations...
