Uzbekistan, the colourful and fertile land that has provided a dramatic stage for characters as diverse as Tamerlane, Marco Polo, Ghervais Khan and Alexander the Great, and through which the fabled Great Silk road which once linked the Meditteranean with the Pacific Ocean is the perfect setting for a never-to-be-forgotten holiday. From the modern streets of Tashkent to the majestic mosques, minarets and madressahs of cities such as Bukhara & Samarkand and from its snow-capped mountains to the breathtaking beauty of its lakes this fascinating country has something for everyone.
