18.09.24 - 29.09.24 - Fully Booked

The land that is now Uzbekistan was once at the heart of the ancient Silk Road trade route connecting China with the Middle East and Rome.

With a population in excess of 25 million, Uzbekistan is the third most populous country of the former Soviet Union after Russia and the Ukraine.

The region has been influenced by many empires, including the Persian, Mongol and Soviet and we are looking forward  to delving into cultural history.  

The country is adorned with beautifully adorned madrasahs (educational institutions) and mosques, reflecting the rich architectural legacy of the Silk Road era.

Uzbekistan is famous for its intricate embroidery and vibrant textiles, such as Suzani, (a traditional embroidered textile), and ikat fabrics, which are hand-dyed and patterned textiles. It also has a strong tradition of ceramic craftsmanship, with beautifully decorated tiles and pottery found in various regions.

We invite you to take a look at our presentation which has full details of our itinerary.
