The British publication The Telegraph published an article “11 reasons why you should visit Uzbekistan”.

The publication underlined that there are three important cities of the Great Silk Road in Uzbekistan. Khiva, Bukhara and Samarkand were key stop-offs for traders, and have all been painstakingly restored to their former glory – think glittering minarets, voluptuous domes and hypnotic mosaics.

The Telegraph writes about the capital city of Uzbekistan. Tashkent was fully destroyed in the result of earthquake in 1966, but it was reconstructed.

The walled city of Khiva is a living museum, protected by UNESCO but still populated by Uzbek families and businesses. It was founded in the 6th century, and thrived as a Silk Road trading city – with increasingly ornate mosques, mausoleums and madrassas (religious schools) added to its labyrinth of streets, all of which have been artfully restored.

The Telegraph underlined that Uzbekistan is secure country for the tourists. Uzbekistan is good place for shopping. According to the edition, travelers pick up handmade ceramics, needlework, silk cloth and miniaturist paintings for just a few dollars.

“Look out for lagman, a hearty lamb soup with thick local noodles, flavoured with chives and black cumin. The unfortunately-named jiz, a Chinese-style mêlée of beef strips, pepper, onion and aubergine, is delicious too. Every region claims to have the best recipe for plov, but in reality they all taste the same,” the author writes.
