People in foreign countries may not have heard about Uzbekistan and not have any idea about their culture, but believe me, almost %90 of those “unfamiliar-with-Uzbekistan” people, definitely do know about this famous city of Samarkand!
This is the real treasure of the country. This is the very place, which was home for the world’s biggest scholars in science and literalture, including Mirzo Ulugbek, one of the astronomy’s fathers, Imam Al-Bukhari, the greatest muhaddis of all times (the scholar, who collected and passed the sayings of prophet Muhammad (s.a.v.)), etc.
Samarkand is one of the richest with history and vast variety of its heritage cities not only in Uzbekistan, but also in the whole world! This where you will find the mausoleum of the leader,who took over the half of the world, Tamerlan, the ruins of ancient civilizations, which are still kept in perfect condition.
So, if you would like to find the world, which is totally different from our modern one, Samarkand is one of the best choices you can make!
