Uzbekistan is in central Asia between the Amu Darya and Syr Darya Rivers, The Aral Sea, and the slopes of the Tien Shan Mountains. The cities of modern Uzbekistan sparkle under the bright sun like pearls scattered along the Silk Road. The country is especially rich in historical artifacts. Life always boiled there, new cities emerged older ones quickly grew, trade and crafts developed. All of that was possible due to the country's favorable position in the picturesque oasis right in the center of the Silk Road routes. ‘’ If there were a Hall of Fame for Central Asian cities, Uzbekistan would own the top-three entries Samarkand, Bukhara, Khiva. ’’.
