Culture in Uzbekistan

Uzbek culture boasts a wealth of richness, characterized not only by its museum-like cities but also by the diverse mix of peoples that have inhabited the region over thousands of years. Upon visiting the ancient cities of Khiva, Samarkand, and Bukhara, one finds themselves enveloped in a sense of wonder and historical depth. These cities, often referred to as museum-cities, have been meticulously restored to reflect their former glory, offering a window into the past.

Flora and Fauna in Uzbekistan

Most of the country is desert and steppe, dominated by an artemisia, a salsola, a sand acacia, a saxaul and a tamarisk. The vegetation of river valleys that occur on dry plains, is fundamentally different from the surrounding desert vegetation. Here there are forests "tugai", where there are a poplar, a willow and a mulberry. In the eastern part of Uzbekistan on the slopes extend broadleaf forests of nut trees, a maple, a birch, an ash and a poplar.
