Uzbekistan is the cradle of many ethnic groups and the centre of many empires. It is perhaps the most fascinating country in Central Asia. This is a real treasure due to its famous landmarks, the remains of ancient cities and the legendary Silk Road. Most of the country’s attractions are in a good condition, despite the dynamic history of this land. Being in a favourable geographical location, Uzbekistan is a place, where numerous Asian cultures meet. Since ancient times it has been a colourful and interesting region.

The country's capital is Tashkent, also called the 'Stone City'. It is located in the heart of a flourishing oasis in the foothills of the Tien Shan. For many centuries, Tashkent has been the intersection of various trade routes that formed an extremely diverse city's appearance.

The Chimgan Mountains are among the most frequently visited destinations for local residents and visitors from other countries. The mountain range in the western part of the Tien Shan Mountains is considered one of the best winter resorts in Asia. In the mountains, tourists will find many resort villages and hotels, a lot of skiing and hiking routes, as well as slopes for climbing.

Located in the Chatkal Mountains, the Chatkal Biosphere Reserve belongs to the list of reserves of global significance by UNESCO. Numerous mountain villages themselves are small climatic resorts, equipped with skiing facilities and vast opportunities for paragliding in summer.

Samarkand is one of the most ancient cities in the world – perhaps it is as old as Babylon and Rome. Samarkand is the ancient Silk Road oasis and the capital city of the powerful empire of Tamerlane. The city is located in the south-eastern part of Uzbekistan, and is known for the medieval citadel, wide streets, magnificent architectural ensembles, and more than a dozen of huge parks and gardens around the city. Most of these objects are still considered a major symbol of the city.

Bukhara is located in south-western Uzbekistan, within three hours of driving from Samarkand. It is another of the oldest cities of Central Asia, the “Star of the Islamic world” and the holy city of Central Asia. In the Middle Ages, there were more than 360 ​​mosques and eighty madrassas here. The modern outlook of the city was created during the Ming Dynasty. Today, it is still extremely popular due to amazing mosques, the city walls and gates, as well as tremendous architectural monuments and tombs. The ancient citadel and more than a hundred of architectural monuments of the Muslim period as well as wonderful narrow streets of the old town have survived in Bukhara to make it a significant historical centre of the country.

At the heart of the Karakum Desert, there lies the City-Reserve Khiva. It is famous for more than 100 monuments of different periods and nations. It was deservedly declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

Termez is situated on the border with Afghanistan, on the bank of the Amu Darya River. It is considered an important commercial centre and a significant centre of Buddhism.

Muynak is a real city-tragedy, which is dying, just as the Aral Sea that loses its water. Muynak used to be one of the two biggest fishing ports on the Aral Sea, but now the coastline is 40 km away. The fishing fleet is now rusting on the land. The climate has also changed, becoming warmer in summer and harsher in winter. Frequent sand and dust storms lead to the decrease in the species of wildlife and the outflow of people. The city serves as a tragic monument to purposeful destruction of the environment, which is caused by the self-confident human intervention in natural processes.
