Why is Uzbekistan irresistible? We will try to answer...
History and Religions:
The area which comprises today's Uzbekistan has a history spanning millions of years; according to the great historian Arnold J. Toynbee, Central Asians were the first people to tame horses and to teach the world to ride them.
The Zoroastrian Religion was born in Khorezm, and the Aryans of India trace their descent from Samarkand.
Buddhism flourished and left its mark, and evidence of Alexander the Great's conquest still survives.
Islam and its culture flourished and is still the faith followed by the majority of the Uzbek people. The greatest historians, scientists, religious scholars, astronomers, Sufis, and poets have lived here and greatly benefited humanity. If Mecca is the capital of Islamic religion, then Uzbekistan is the capital of Islamic culture: Imam Al Bukhari, Bahaud Din Naqshband, Ibn Sino (Avicena), Al Beruni, Ulugbek, Alisher Navoi, Khawaja Nasar Ud Din, Babur, Beruni, Tamerlane, Al Khorazmi, Termizi, Abdul Khaliq Gijduvani and many other great minds lived and worked in these lands.
The Jews of Bukhara are still one of the main tribes of Judaism.
Orthodox Christianity flourished with the arrival of the Russian Empire.
By visiting modern Uzbekistan, you will travel back into history, by experiencing great relics of antiquity preserved for humankind, both in museums and at monumental archeological sites. One of these is The Quran of Hazrat Usman, displayed in Tashkent.
Uzbeks feel lucky to enjoy all four seasons: Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter.
Spring: The Central Asian New Year, Navruz (21st of March), marks the start of Spring. Leaves start budding in the trees, flowers pop up everywhere, people start wearing colorful clothing, and faces start glowing with the arrival of spring. A visitor will feel the cheerfulness and festivity in the air and everywhere. Bazaars are full of cherries and strawberries at low prices.
Summers are pleasantly warm, and for this reason people generally do not use air conditioning or fans during the summer, days are warm and evenings are comfortably cool. People go swimming in lakes such as beautiful Charvak, spend time hiking in the hills and retreat to dachas (Russian name for summer cabins). People dress in light colors and sandals. Women in bikinis roam the lake beaches, which for visitors is a wonderful sight. Sweet melons, peaches, apricots, watermelons, apples, grapes, raspberries, tomatoes, cucumbers, and fresh and organic vegetables are available everywhere.
With the start of autumn, bazaars fill with shoppers, people begin buying their winter clothing, start preserving vegetables and fruits for winter, leaves fall and local residents begin preparations for winter. Tasty fruits like persimmons, figs, quinces, pomegranates and plums are matchless, very cheap and sold in city and local bazaars.
Sometimes winters are abruptly early and sometimes thankfully late. Some years, even December has autumn weather, though usually winter begins in November. With the start of winter, children play in the snow and the country sports the look of a winter wonderland. Snow lovers make the trip to the Chimgan and Beldersay resorts to play winter games and sports, and the majority hang out in their centrally heated homes. Hotels, stores, and the metro are centrally heated.
The four seasons in Uzbekistan leave their pleasant impressions and life keeps moving forward.
Words are insufficient to describe all the beauty of Uzbek culture. Dresses, music, poetry, elderly people, children, women, hospitality, food, houses, mahallahs, sports, castes, respect for elders, respect for women, care of children, vendors in bazaars, theaters, museums, folk arts, people of different nationalities and religions living together sharing and respecting their differences etc. People in local communities still share the good (marriages) and bad times (deaths) together.
