Vestige of the Russian occupation in Termez...

My experience, Explo description: 

Termez was the cross point where all the supply to the Soviet Army during the war in Afghanistan was coming from. Thus, Termez was a huge and strategic garrison city, and the citadel is one of the last witness of that time. The citadel is now a base of the Uzbek army. You can’t get in, but still you can have a check at its murals.

In Termez, you can also visit the Afghanistan war museum (1km west from the citadel, 200m north from the Russian church). Unfortunately, the museum is closed at the moment. Whatever, you can see in the garden 2 or 3 tanks and impressive soviet army statues.

My personal recommendations: 

From Samarkand, you can rent a taxi with a driver for 2 days to go to Termez. Might be really useful cause you will need a car once you are at Termez to visit all the places around. Total price for 2 days : 100 euros.

How getting there: 

Whatever many guides might say, getting to Termez is not so complicated. Unfortunately, not many buses and trains are getting there. 3 direct flights to Tashkent every day. Taxi from Samarkand (single way : 40euros : 7h drive...).

A tip to sleep: 

You can stay in Termez.
