Samarkand, Uzbekistan


Samarkand Trips

Few names are as evocative or shrouded in legend as Samarkand. The capital of Timur is the great city at the end of the Golden Road. Here you'll be dazzled by the tilework on the mosques surrounding Registan Square, often described as the most beautiful city square in the world. Then there's the stunning fluted dome of the Gur-i-Emir and the incredible avanue of Shah-i-Zinda, where the buildings are covered in beautiful mosaics.

But our Samarkand tours will also reveal what life is like in Uzbekistan today, with a visit to the huge markets in the city centre, where exotic fruits, nuts and other local produce stretch out before you. This truly is a city like no other.
