Uzbekistan is a land of diverse, yet peculiar, public and cultural development. Having been conquered by Arabs and Soviets, and settled by Buddhists and Chinese, the Uzbek culture is influenced by pretty much every other civilization. The country also saw many influential figures throughout its history who not only influenced Uzbekistan but left their imprints throughout the world.
