Bukhara is so ancient that it is said to have been mentioned even in Avesto. Thousands of years ago, the city was the center of different civilization. During the period of the Great Silk road, it was one of the noisiest trade centers in Central Asia. The majestic buildings and colorful monuments that were built those times still remain and keep the greatness of it.
