Holidays to Uzbekistan

Tailor-made holidays and private tours to Uzbekistan


Why travel to Uzbekistan

If any monuments could be said to epitomize the distant splendour of the Silk Road, it’s the domed mosques, tombs and madrasas of Uzbekistan. An ancient cultural crucible between the Amu-Darya (Oxus) and Syr-Darya rivers, this former Soviet republic holds three of the world’s oldest cities – Samarkand, Bukhara and Khiva – whose walled centres are best described as ‘open-air museums’, with sights spanning five millennia.

Few visitors venture further than the region’s major hubs, but there is ample incentive to do so. The silk workshops of the fabled Fergana Valley, the forgotten fortresses of the Khorezm Delta region, and nomadic camel herders camps on the fringes of the mighty Kyzl Kum desert provide vivid experiences of ways of life buried for decades under the mantle of Soviet rule.


Highlights of Uzbekistan

  • Beautiful monuments – marvel at the green-glazed domes and resplendent mosaic-tiled minarets of Timurid Samarkand, Bukhara and Khiva

  • Atmospheric bazaars – Uzbek markets are wonderful for people watching and souvenir hunting

  • Exquisite arts and crafts – experience the living legacy of the Silk Road in workshops of ceramicists, wood carvers, calligraphers, musical instrument makers, suzani embroiderers and silk carpet weavers

  • Ancient ruins – explore the remnants of lost Sogdian cities and forts captured by the armies of Alexander the Great 2,500 years ago

  • Evocative music – nothing conjours up the mystique of the Silk Road like traditional Uzbek or Kazakh music performed on the ‘dutar’ in restaurants and theatres
