  • Urgut near Samarkand, at approximately 40 kilometroov, there is the small town of Urgut. Road dust and shattered, potholes don't give to drive fast and so, like a small distance, takes a lot of time, and the constant shaking tires. However, all these inconvenience worth endure to visit one of the quaint corners of our country. At the end of town, the road begins to climb up along the Creek with deep shores, on which grow fruit trees. All around is covered with a thick layer of white dust, tossed cars off the road. Home residents crowding also vzbegajut up until the road emerges not in relatively small guests with arched gates. Here begins the lovely complex "Kirk Chinor", which translates to the Uzbek language "forty Planes". In General, many reviews can leave all about Uzbekistan, and as your questions.

  • You haven't been to Uzbekistan if you haven't seen Registan Square. It's that simple. If you are lucky there is a light show when you are there in the evening. They do it when there are many tourists....  more »
  • Uzbekistan is a country little known and not is a destination common, but if you have the opportunity, as I it had makes years, have that visit the city of Samarkand. It is history that is being studied in the College. Alive is legacy.

  • Very beautiful historical place. Amazing architecture and tiles work. The main hall with beautiful golden work is amazing. Ticket to entry to all three buildings is 21000 Som I.e. Uzbekistan currency. But all the rooms inside the three buildings are rented to shops selling souvenirs.
  • One of the best places to be an one of the most beautiful squares in the world. Come here for sunrise to get a chance to go up one of the minaret's.
  • Samarkand is 3rd worlds old citi on the earth Samarkand age comparable with Roome . Alexander great fighter were here and Registan is in Samarkand and withness of most histories
  • It's my dream place to visit. All people are nice to others and I felt real peace here.
  • What can you say. It really lives up to the hype.
