EXPLORE BREATHTAKING UZBEKISTAN WITH RUSMICE!
RUSMICE Team has just come back after one week expedition to Uzbekistan – oriental fairytale, the Great Silk Road, Kyzyl-Kum desert, famous uzbek hospitality and scrumptious food (the word “diet” doesn’t exist in Uzbekistan). We have visited 4 main cities – Tashkent, Samarkand, Bukhara, Khiva – and want to share with you our excitement about this yet not widely discovered destination.
P.S. September is the best time to travel to Uzbekistan (+25-30°C, always sunny, fruit season). To know more just drop us an email on: firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is ancient capital Amir Temur – the great conqueror of 13th century who created an empire with territories from Turkish Bosphorus to India. Samarkand immerse you into breathtaking world of blue domes, ancient mosques, minarets and necropolises (included into UNESCO World Heritage list). Moreover, there are famous wine factories and tons of amazing local cuisine restaurants.
This city will charm you with its cozy old town, 16th century hammam, relaxed atmosphere and mainly with its traditional crafts. The masters of ceramics, wood carving, carpet making, ikat (traditional textile pattern), embroidery, silk paper, knives making pass their traditions from one generation to another within centuries. Prepare a very big suitcase for your way back home to fit in all these treasures!
Khiva is an open air museum surrounded by the desert. According to archaeological data, the city was established around 1500 years ago. Here you can travel back in time – enjoy afternoon tea in one of the best chaikhana (local teahouse) in Uzbekistan, stay in ancient madrasa now turned into boutique hotel with breathtaking view to old town and make a wish near Kheyvak well (according to the legend, built by Sim – son of Biblical Noah).
