Find out about Uzbekistan, the jewel of the Silk Road

We have a fantastic Glories of Uzbekistan escorted tour departing in Autumn 2020, and we would love to share the information with you.

Uzbekistan is the jewel of the Silk Road, an ancient country of deserts and mountains where merchants, pilgrims, and warriors made their mark on the glittering cities of Samarkand, Bukhara, and Khiva. The magnificent architecture of these UNESCO World Heritage Sites is matched only by their dazzling decoration: gold leaf interiors, mosaics, and hand painted tiles. Having cast off its Soviet past, Uzbekistan is now once again open to the world, inviting curious guests to discover not only its impressive built environment but also its intangible cultural heritage. Your tour includes Uzbekistan’s world famous historical sites, of course, but also the timeless workshops of silk weavers and potters, knife makers and miniaturists, who are preserving age-old techniques.

If you can't make this particular tour, but want to find out more about this amazing destination, you are welcome to come along.

We will be holding a PRESENTATION AT 10.30am hosted by Uzbekistan’s Tourism Ambassador to the UK & Indus Experiences

or drop-in 12pm to 3pm

We hope to see you there.
