Samarkand is one of the oldest cities in the world with a 2750-year history, the same age as Rome, Athens, and Babylon. Samarkand is a bridge connecting the past, present and future. I will show you the main attractions of Samarkand, in addition, you will have the opportunity to get acquainted with the traditions, customs and life of the local population.

 The excursion program includes:

  • The Gur-Emir Mausoleum is the burial place of Tamerlane and his descendants. You will hear facts and legends related to it.
  • Registan Square is the visiting card of Samarkand. I will tell you about the magnificent mosques and madrassas located on it.
  • Bibi Khanum Cathedral Mosque – you’ll admire its sky-blue dome and arch the size of the Milky Way.
  • Khazrat Khizr Mosque, the olderst mosque of Samarkand, where the first President of Uzbekistan was buried.
  • The Shahi-Zinda memorial complex is one of the mysterious architectural monuments of Samarkand. It is believed that this is where the grave of Kusam ibn Abbas, a companion of the Prophet Muhammad himself, is located.
  • Ulugbek Observatory – I’ll tell you about the life and scientific methods of the great scientist, mathematician and astronomer Mirzo Ulugbek.

I propose (if desired) to also include in the excursion program:
