The Silk Road shaped the world we know today. Weaving from Europe to Asia, Russia to the Indian Subcontinent, and everywhere in between, it was along this network of ancient trading routes that people, ideas, inventions, and goods made their way. First and foremost are the great Silk Road cities of Samarkand, Bukhara, Shakhrisabz and Khiva, which have been inspiring visitors with their architectural masterpieces for centuries. All UNESCO World Heritage Sites, these cities are bejeweled with majolica tiles, stained glass, gilded ceilings, and exquisite paintings and carvings.
At the centre of the Silk Road, and waiting to be discovered, is Uzbekistan. It’s quicker and easier than ever before to get there: Uzbekistan Airways, the National air company of Uzbekistan performs scheduled flights to more than 40 cities of the world – to the countries of Europe and Asia, to America and Japan. Representative offices of the NAC are working in 25 countries of the world.
