Bukhara

Bukhara is the capital city of Bukhara province in southwestern Uzbekistan, towards the border with Turkmenistan. An enchanting historical city, established for two and a half millennia, and at one time considered one of the world's centers of civilisation, it is home to countless mosques, madrassas and other architectural marvels which chart its varied influences from the Samanids and Muslims to the Persians and Aryans. Its archaeological significance has seen it deemed a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and its location on the Silk Road has long established Bukhara as an important center for trade, art and culture. It has been mentioned in literature by the likes of Rumi who called it "a mine of knowledge", and Fitzroy Maclean who claimed its architecture could rival that of the Italian Renaissance.

Visitors to this "city-museum" are plunged into a fully immersive historical experience and delighted by its ancient wonders including the Kalyan Minaret with its Kalan Mosque, the awe-inspiring Ark Fortress and the city's beautiful covered bazaars and markets.
