The British journalist writes article about his trip to Uzbekistan in the newspaper Metro
Tashkent, Uzbekistan (UzDaily.com) -- The British daily Metro published an article by Richard Mellon about his trip to Uzbekistan, Dunyo news agency reported.
The author of the article traveled to Tashkent, Samarkand, Bukhara and Khiva. He remembered Tashkent for its tourist attractions, which managed to become classics, as well as a variety of exquisite national cuisine. He shares with the reader what surprised him the most.
“For example, I saw the millennial Quran,” he writes. “No less surprised were the cars on the roads and the dials at the metro stations, which show the time of departure of the last train.”
Mellon is sure that a visa-free regime for UK citizens turns Uzbekistan into an attractive tourist destination.
A British journalist writes about Samarkand that along with Bukhara and Khiva, this city is a triumph in the field of tourism.
“The main square of Samarkand - Registan, cleaned to a shine, personifies the Islamic greatness of Central Asia,” writes R. Mellon.
For lovers of antiquities who want to know the history and get in touch with the culture of the Great Silk Road, Uzbekistan is exactly that point on the world map that must be visited, the author believes.
In Bukhara, the journalist drew attention to such an advantage as the proximity of all architectural sights from each other. “We walked from the unusual Bolo-Khauz mosque with painted wooden columns to the Bukhara citadel “Ark”, where the ruling emirs once lived,” the journalist says.
The last travel distance of the British journalist was Khiva, where he, along with historical sites, also visited a puppet studio.
“If I had stayed a little longer, perhaps the masters would have made a doll identical to me,” he shares his impressions.
