Top sigths of Uzbekistan
Many cities in Uzbekistan appeared as stops on the Silk Route. Bukhara is one of them. This is one of the largest cities in the country that, nevertheless, preserved its historic heritage. The name Bukhara literally means “the noble” or “the holy” and indeed in the past it was considered one of the holiest cities in Central Asia. The old part of the city is primarily famous for the Lab-i-Hauz square and fountains. The capital of Uzbekistan, Tashkent, is the cultural center of the country. Main attractions here include Kaldyrgach-bly Mausoleum, Khavendi Takhur Sheikh Mausoleum, Abdulkasim Madrassa, Yunus Khan Mausoleum, Khazret Imam and Mausoleum of Zainuddin-bobo Sheikh.
