Several branches of the Great Silk Road passed through Central Asia, facilitating trade, knowledge exchange, and urban growth. All five countries were part of the Soviet Union and became independent states in 1991. Each country has its distinct character, traditions, and landscape, but in some ways, there are similarities. Because of its proximity to Afghanistan, many travellers were wary of visiting these countries. But in fact, the region is very safe to visit.
Most of the population of Central Asia are Turkic-speaking peoples (Uzbeks, Turkmens, Kyrgyz, Kazakhs, Uighurs and Karakalpaks), and the languages of these nations are part of the Turkic group of languages and are similar to each other.
