To say that Uzbekistan is the crossroads of the world’s cultures is no exaggeration. With over 2500 years of history, Uzbekistan has been dominated by Alexander the Great, Genghis Khan, Tamerlane and the Arabs, served as a religious center for Zoroastrianism, Buddhism and Islam and welcomed travelers from the world over as they passed through on its Great Silk Road.
On Crossroads of the World’s Cultures Tour, you’ll spend seven memorable days traversing Uzbekistan, whose canvas still bears the imprint of its colorful history. Visit Tashkent, Khiva, Bukhara and Samarkand’s most acclaimed sights, traveling by Uzbekistan’s new bullet train between the cities.
