Uzbekistan Travel Guide
Uzbekistan is the heart of Central Asia. Located at the Great Silk Road, the country has preserved ancient cities with thousands of architectural monuments and is famous for its delicious cuisine and warm Uzbek hospitality. All about Uzbekistan's cities, their history, and sights.
History of Uzbekistan
Briefly summarizing the history of Uzbekistan is not an easy task. On the one hand, history goes back more than 3,000 years, although few documents have survived, especially from the early period, because the ruling nomadic peoples were not familiar with written documentation. On the other hand, the territory of Central Asia was not divided into distinct states. The borders changed with each conquest, great empires rose and collapsed, and the region was conquered from different directions. Nevertheless, we can say that the region was formed under the influence of five main invaders: the Persians, Greeks, Arabs, Mongols, and Russians.
