Samarkand, once the capital of Tamerlane’s expansive empire and a major destination on the Silk Road, is a city that has weathered the passing of time for more than 2700 years. Bukhara and Tashkent hold equally fascinating histories within their ancient walls, parks and bazaars. A New Year spent in such a historical setting, once at the crossroads of the world’s cultures, will not be soon forgotten.
