What comes to mind when Uzbekistan’s sights are in question? It is, first of all, very rich surviving architectural heritage of this ancient Oriental land: minarets, mosques, madrasahs, fortresses, ruins of ancient settlements, squares… Among them stand out the famous Registan Square in Samarkand, with the three marvelous madrasahs built in the 15th – 17th c at its three sides, and the grand Samarkand’s Gur-Emir Mausoleum with its turquoise dome, where the famous conqueror Tamerlane is buried. Bukhara is first of all associated with the mausoleum of the Samanids dating back to the 9th c and the 50-meter-tall minaret Kalyan, although there are 170 other significant architectural monuments in the city. Khiva is famous for its Ichan-Kala – a medieval town in the city, with almost nothing reminding us of the current 21th сentury in it. Although time has not spared most old architectural masterpieces in Uzbekistan, those of them remaining are winning strong admiration of almost anyone. Besides, all these sights are not only architectural monuments; they are full of life, which often resembles scenes from the Oriental Middle Ages.
