  • The magnificence of the architectural ensemble of three madrasahs are very impressed and was remembered most from the whole trip in Uzbekistan (Tashkent-Samarkand-Bukhara-Khiva-Urgench). The monumental complex of buildings, which looks majestically both day and night. We liked especially the evening before, but we must remember that the evening illumination lights up the entire 1:00 from 20.00 to 21.00. Weather permitting, you can sit on a bench near a viewing platform and watch tourists and locals, who flock to the Registan on all sides. Inside the buildings of the Madrasah is particularly striking painting sets domes. A few interferes with an overabundance of souvenir shops, but they are everywhere in Uzbekistan, which is understandable, because earnings from trade souvenirs important item of income of local residents. All this is not to overshadow the grandeur creations of human hands of many generations of people who lived and living on this earth.

  • Super spectacular! A must see in Uzbekistan. The outside is really wonderful, huge and impressive. The inside is also spectacular with different kinds of ceilings. The atmosphere is very nice, a combination of impressive views, interesting people and some nice shops. Highly recommended.
  • Was absolutely in awe of this place. I could practically be sitting there and stare at it for days before moving. Ppl are nice and gentle. Its a traveler must go destination. Next stop, you should hit Bukhara. It would another mind blowing place you want to be.
  • Beautiful architecture. Was a pleasure to see it in real life. Will definitely recommend for friends to visit
  • Breathtaking - in symmetry- the ensemble is a sight to behold. Every corner is good photo opportunity. As you enter the complex building it housed a bazaar where locals sell their ware - handicrafts , potteries, tilework, needle works, fabrics like silk, carpets, woodcarving , clothes esp. chapan and even foodstuff. Its a souvenir galore - most are reasonably priced and the vendors allow you to bargain.
  • Awesome place to visit ...for its colourful work on walls ... Inside it is market for shopping but prices are quite high..but products are good...
