The Silk Route as a trade route came into being in the 3rd century B.C. and lived to see the 16th century of this era.
The trade towns situated along the Silk Route saw numerous devastating wars, destructions, fires, famine and plague. Some of them fell into oblivion, leaving nameless ruins for their descendants to ponder, others more than once perished in fire but revived again to amaze the world with their riches, the deep blue of their cupolas and the terracotta lace-like ornamentation of the mausoleums and mosques. For centuries crowds of people speaking diverse languages filled the bazaars, and long caravans moved along the dusty roads carrying precious gems and silks, spices and dyes, gold and silver, exotic birds and animals to sell to the Europeans.
The Silk Route is one of the most significant achievements in the history of world civilization. The widespread network of caravan ways crossed Europe and Asia from China to the Mediterranean coast and in ancient times served as an important means of business affairs and cultural exchange between East and West.
