Samarkand Tour for 4-5 hours
Samarkand is the same age as Rome, Babylon and Athens. I will reveal how the history of the city developed, why it was once called Afrosiab, what trade routes passed through it and how Tamerlane influenced its fate. In the excursion program: Mausoleum Gur Emir - you will appreciate the splendor of the family tomb of Tamerlane and decipher its architectural symbols. Registan Square is the heart of Samarkand. Here you will learn the rich history of the majestic madrasahs of Ulugbek, Sher Dor and Tilla Kori.
Shakhi-Zinda is a family necropolis of the female half of Timur's relatives and the military nobility, reminiscent of a medieval city sparkling with azure colors. Bibi-Khanym Mosque - built by Timur for his beloved wife, it will impress you with amazing tiles, mosaics and blue domes. In the old days, this mosque was not equal either in the East or in the West. The Oriental Bazaar is a place that will captivate you with an abundance of local sweets, nuts, vegetables and fruits.
