  • The center of Samarkand and Uzbekistan, which is a symbol of the square in the early morning sun rise was a bit expensive, especially when you look at the magnificent entrance fee went solemn and colorful in many places worth seeing by street vendors selling souvenirs are per person is only a short foot suggest protecting the gap sell bear

  • Just a stunning sight if you look on the Registan square! We were because of the beauty there twice, once in the morning including the visit to the madrassas and evening where the Registan square is beautifully lit! He is also the largest square in Central Asia! On our Uzbekistan travel the most beautiful and impressive tourist attraction that was built from the 14th to the 17th century.

  • Registan square is renovated and very beautiful. It is more complex, but the basis are three madrasas, each of them different. I recommend you visit both during the day, when you can go to the madrasas, as well as in the evening, when the lighting gives a different atmosphere. Impressive. As well as the whole of Samarkand. A lot of fountains around the Registanu.

  • Yes! It really is that impressive! Come really early in the morning to enjoy a view of the registan when it's not so crowded. Or come at night to see it lit up in dark surroundings.
