The city, glorified in myths and legends, survived slavery during the times of Alexander the Great and Genghis Khan, turned by the emir Timur into the capital of a huge empire and the center of medieval science and art, cultivated great poets and philosophers.

Samarkand still keeps its rich heritage to this day, thanks to which it was included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Just imagine - for almost 25 centuries this city was a real political and economic “heart” of Eurasia, legends circulated about its wealth and abundance. This is reflected in the stunning architecture and dozens, if not hundreds local monuments. Incredible Registan Square, Gur-Emir mausoleum, Shahi-Zinda tomb ensemble, Bibi-Khanum mosque, Khoja Daniyar mausoleum (saint, revered in Islam, Christianity and Judaism) and many others literally amaze the imagination of city guests.

Nowhere else will you see so complex and skillfully executed architectural delights that inspire great respect for their creators. Sometimes it even seems that the hand of man simply could not create something so beautiful and harmonious.

But despite all its antiquity and pomp, Samarkand is now quite a modern city, where business is in full swing, science and industry are developing. Its history is wonderfully intertwined with the new time, which only gives it even more brilliance and charm.
