About Uzbekistan cities
The modern day Uzbekistan is one of the oldest inhabited regions in Central Asia and the earliest settlement dates back to 6th Century BC. The people were Iranian speaking nomads called Scythians who founded kingdoms of Khwarezm, Bactria, and Sogdia. As the region was strategically situated along the Great Silk Road route that facilitated trade between East and West, in the later years, the region got invaded by the like of Alexander, Genghis Khan, Chinese and Greek merchants. And from time to time, various Khanates and empires emerged out of Uzbekistan. As a result, there were numerous monuments made in various parts of Uzbekistan, especially in the cities along the Silk Road route, many of which stand tall to this day. A number of these are now World Heritage Sites designated by UNESCO.
Today Uzbekistan is a unitary constitutional republic with 12 provinces and one autonomous republic. Besides historical sites, there are many recreational and adventure sites for tourists to take advantage of on a one-day short tour.
