Why visit Samarkand?
From the air, the city is an array of colours and patterns created from the many domes and minarets. When exploring the city itself travellers will find the magnificent tomb of Tamerlane, the observatory of Uleg Bek, one of the world’s first astronomers, and Shah-I-Zinda, the street of tombs. Along with the traditional central Asian delight of technicolour bazaars, which are able to work magic on those who wish to delve deeper. At its centre, Registan Square, flanked by three huge buildings of great dimensions, is the greatest architectural ensemble in Central Asia which today is the unlikely and yet perfect setting for theatre and shows.
