Bukhara a living museum

It got more and more interesting as we traveled west to the smaller but equally historically rich cities in the Silk Route.

After Samarkand, our next destination was Bukhara. It is 2000 years old and is a perfect example of a typical medieval Central Asian city that has remained largely intact. Like the other cities, there is a new part of town and an old part of town. But unlike the others where it’s usually empty in the old town with only museum-historical architectural monuments, the old town of Bukhara has been continuously inhabited through centuries. The compact city is filled with green parks, with its monuments right in the center of daily activity.
