Uzbekistan’s most glorious city, Samarkand, offers a fine combination of history and modern urban life.

The entire old city, which has some of the finest squares in the world, has been protected as a World Heritage Site, with its spectacular architecture including palace complexes and madrasas, mosques and mausoleums. Enjoying a massage at a spa or tasting a hot naan at a bustling bazaar form an unmissable part of any Samarkand intinerary.
