Of the five UNESCO World Heritage sites in Uzbekistan, Samarkand and Old City Bukhara are indisputably the most visited and well-known of all. One glance at their glorious structures will reveal why: Bukhara is a striking testimony to the advanced city planning and structural design of the ancient Islamic world, and Samarkand a vivid example of architectural craftsmanship at its finest, which served as a blueprint for countless building endeavors in Asia and the Middle East.
