Uzbekistan is just another of many unwieldy countries that made up the broad mantle of Soviet Union. Now, Uzbekistan is rapidly opening up to the outside world. Tourism is one of the one of the areas where capitalism has prevailed.
Tashkent, Uzbekistan's capital, is the largest city in Central Asia and the gateway to the ancient towns of Samarkand, Bukhara, and Khiva (Urgench). One day tour is enough to see the city's Soviet and post-independence architecture. Samarkand, on the other hand, is worth at least a 2-3 days. Samarkand i's also called as a "Pearl of the East"
