Khiva

3.9
With an illustrious history as a main stop along the Great Silk Road, Khiva boasts remarkably well-preserved cultural attractions and a beautiful historic core. The World Heritage-listed old town top itineraries in Khiva, where hundreds of 18th- and 19th-century houses and monuments testify to the city's past as a khanate capital and quasi-independent state under Russian imperial rule. Though a day trip to Khiva from Urgench would allow you to check out all the highlights, you should consider a longer if you really want to experience the old city--most magical at dawn and sunset. Khiva is in Xorazm Province. Use our Uzbekistan trip planner to arrange your visit to Khiva and any other destinations in Uzbekistan that take your fancy.
