Book Description:
'The best guidebook to bring is the Uzbekistan volume in the Odyssey series... It is one of those rare travel guides that is a joy to read whether or not you are planning a trip.' The New York TimesFrom the blue tiled splendor of Tamerlane's Samarkand to the holy city of Bukhara, and beyond to the desert girdled khanate of Khiva, Uzbekistan lays claim to a breathtaking architectural legacy. Bound by sand and snow, fed by meltwater from the Roof of the World, these fertile oases have attracted travelers and conquerors along the fragile threads of the Silk Road throughout history. This groundbreaking guide focuses on the wealth of sites and colorful legends along Central Asia's golden road. Includes: informative insights into the history, religion and culture of Uzbekistan; special topics including the disappearance of the Aral Sea, and the life and death of Tamerlane the Great; up to date practical information for the traveler, covering visas, customs and travel agencies; hints for business visitors; environmental issues; useful maps, together with detailed plans of principal sites; and more. 108 full color photographs, 23 maps
