Sightseeing in Samarkand

The city of Samarkand is one of the oldest cities in the world, whose existence, according to scientists, appeared in the 8th century BC. The great silk road passed through Samarkand, formerly Marakand, and the city was a key point for merchants.
          During the reign of Tamerlane and the Timurid dynasty, Samarkand was the capital and one of the centers of science of the medieval East.  Today, there is a huge amount of medieval architecture, thanks to which we can plunge into history, seeing where people studied, lived and how the city looked a few centuries ago.  The most incredible and frequently visited place in Samarkand, of course, is "Registan", but do not stop there, Samarkand will find something else to surprise you.
