Uzbekistan is a patchwork of middle eastern heritage combined with Eastern influences including Soviet Russian architecture and food influences and Chinese dishes. It is also arduous to find greenery and foliage amongst the rolling sand dunes and desert, however, this merely makes the oases more magical. Uzbekistan is also home to rare wildlife, including white-clawed bears, golden eagles, lynxes, and snow leopards.
You can travel along the famous silk road that runs through several countries, across land and sea, that was built for trade. There are beautiful mosques, mausoleums and fortresses with traditional architecture and minarets; a refreshing change from European influences. As Uzbekistan is still an unusual tourist destination for the UK, most other tourists will be domestic.
