About the City
Dating back over two-and-a-half millennia, Bukhara is one of the most ancient cities of the East. Plucked seemingly from the pages of an Oriental fairy tale, with turquoise mosque domes, azure mosaics and carved doors, it conquers the hearts of travellers at first sight. During the time of the Great Silk Road, the land was traversed by caravan tracks. Through the ages Bukhara has nourished a love of trade and crafts, hospitality and respect for guests, and, most importantly, preserved a unique architectural heritage: the ancient Ark Citadel, the majestic Kalyan Mosque that can hold up to 12,000 people, and the eponymous minaret, which not even Genghis Khan dared to destroy. Other worthwhile sights include the thousand-year-old Samanid Mausoleum, the Lyabi-Khauz architectural ensemble, and the Chor-Minor Madrassah. And to get acquainted with Uzbek traditions and cuisine, visitors should take a stroll through the city's trading domes and try the famous Bukhara pilau in an exotic tearoom.
