John Reinhard: Uzbekistan is a great country to travel
Tashkent, Uzbekistan (UzDaily.com) -- Based on the results of his creative trips to Uzbekistan, the famous Belgian photographer John Reinhard published an article under the heading “Uzbekistan is the pearl of the Silk Road and the Rumi trail” in the Dutch site “Sufi Trail”, Dunyo reported.
“They are real, that is, countries that are still unknown, not yet open and new.
Uzbekistan is the pearl of the Great Silk Road and the route of Jalolidin Rumi. They really exist, those countries that are still unknown, so untouched and new. What new can we say about Uzbekistan - a country that has existed for about 3000 years.
This is one of those beautiful countries in Central Asia that we know little about. Of course, we heard about the Silk Road, but it is less known that there are stunningly beautiful cities on the Silk Road. Ancient cities such as Samarkand, Bukhara and Khiva, which have been carefully restored in recent years and where minarets, mosques and Koranic schools shine dazzlingly.
It is like a walk through the World Heritage Directory. Returning to the street, no less colorful bazaars and markets await you. Discover unprecedented products and, above all, with the friendly and hospitable traders who offer them. Enjoy the diverse, sometimes rugged landscape and imagine yourself as part of one of the many caravans that have long passed this region.
Of course, not everything in the country is very ancient. Travel to Tashkent and get acquainted with the modern metropolis with architectural masterpieces, beautiful buildings and one of the most beautiful metro networks that you have ever seen. At the moment, 29 metro stations have been built, each of which looks like an art gallery, trying to seduce you to stay underground longer. But Tashkent and other places in Uzbekistan can offer much more.
You can easily write a whole book filled with all the culinary delights of the country and western flavor, and we must definitely try the Uzbek cuisine.
Uzbekistan is a warm, friendly, safe and clean country. The original feature of the world, which has a rich history, is revealed to us and in us, at the same time.
Its feature remains the availability of modern amenities such as Internet access, direct dial telephone and transport. Uzbekistan has an extensive network of domestic routes. High-speed trains are able to bring everyone from all over the country. In addition to Uzbek, they speak Russian, English and French, this is also an important advantage.
In fact, there is no good reason not to go to Uzbekistan - this is a great country to travel to.”
