Classic Uzbekistan

From £1700 for 12 days
Trip Overview
Uzbekistan is bursting with ancient history, interwoven cultures, vibrant marketplaces and diverse landscapes, and on this 12-day classic adventure, you’ll experience the best of the Uzbek. Hitting the capital Tashkent at the beginning and end, discover the unique collection of Russia avant garde art in the most unusual choice of location – Nukus, walk the walls of the ancient inner city of Khiva, explore the sacred and holy sites in Heritage-listed Bukhara and be dwarfed by the medressas in the iconic Registan Square of Samarkand. Learn about a history that may be often overlooked, but is definitely not dull – Uzbekistan’s mix of Islamic influence, Silk Road splendour and Soviet-era rule provides insight into an era long gone, but definitely not forgotten.

Trip Highlights

•   Nukus takes you off the tourist grid and back to Uzbekistan in its Soviet-era times. No wonder Savitskiy Art Gallery, the second most valuable collection of Russian avant-garde art, chose its home here.

•   Spend time in World Heritage-listed Bukhara – a sixth-century BC city that's teeming with history and home to the formidable Ark of Bukhara.

•   Get a bit active and learn the stories and people of Uzbekistan while sharing home-cooked meals with local families on a visit to the Amankutan Valley.

•   Steeped in Silk Road history and immortalised in many a tale, the World Heritage-listed town of Khiva is full of colourful monuments and history spanning centuries.

•   Stand in Samarkand’s Registan Square, getting dwarfed by the scale and beauty of the medressas surrounding you – some of the true pinnacles of Islamic architecture.

Itinerary & Notes
Xush kelibsiz! Welcome to Uzbekistan. The largest city in Central Asia with a population of over 2 million, Tashkent is a mix of Russian and Uzbek style, an indication of the fact that for many years it was a key city of the Soviet Republic. Your adventure begins with an important welcome meeting at 6 pm today, where you’ll meet your group leader and travel companions. If you have time beforehand, take a walk to see some of the contemporary architecture that sets this city apart from many other Silk Road destinations, or find yourself some samsa (savoury meat pastry) to snack on.
