Day Tour to Samarkand

Afrosiab Speed Train. 20170420_222333 Samarkand. Sher-Dor Madrassah. (2)

Welcome to magnificent Samarkand - the most ancient city of Uzbekistan and Central Asia.
Samarkand is one of the greatest Silk Route's crossroad and melting pot of the world's culture.
Founded in the 7th century B. C. as ancient Afrasiab, Samarkand is the same age as Rome, Athens and Babylon. Samarkand was a capital of Tamerlane's Empire and It is one of the best preserved Islamic architecture city in the world.

This city had its most significant development in the Temurid period (14th -15th centuries). The major monuments include the Registan Ensemble (mosque and madrasahs), Gur-Emir Mausoleum, Bibi-Khanum Mosque, Shakhi-Zinda Necropolis and Ulugbek's Observatory.

The legendary Samarkand square of Registan has up to now been considered to be one of the main architectural sights of Central Asia. The monuments of Samarkand are majestic and wonderful. In this town one can feel the breath of history itself.
