Gur Amir

It is always hard to believe that everything has an end in this world. However, when you visit the places, such as Gur Amir, there will be no other way than admitting it.

Gur Amir from Uzbek means “Tomb of Amir/Tamerlan”. Also located in Samarkand city, this mausolem attracts every single tourist, who visits Samarkand. They do it not only to enjoy watching another masterpiece of architects, but also to see with their own eyes the fact; the fact that even the conqueror of the world was not able to stay in this life forever…

Registan Square

The doors of Tamerlan, Sher Dor may be a bit difficult to distinguish, when you see the other buildings that stand nearby. So, where is it located at the first place?

Sher Dor is welcoming the tourists from all over the world from the famous square or downtown Samarkand, which is called as “Registan”. This is the place, which became the symbol of Samarkand city, just like Eiffel tower in Paris.

On the right side and in front of Sher Dor, there are two more buildings of the same size and shape. They were built by next rulers of Temur’s empire and served as madrasahs – the religious institiutions in the city.

Doors of Tamerlan

The majestic masterpiece of architecture in the picture above is special for the reason that it was built by one of the biggest conquerors of the world – Tamerlan or Amir Temur. And guess where it is located? In one of the most beautiful cities of Uzbekistan – Samarkand.

SInce I started from the building itself, I will introduce it first, before going into the city itself. It is called Sher Dor, which means the “building with tigers”. During the rulings of Amir Temur, it served as madrasah, religious institution. Despite the fact that the religion of Islam did not support the drawings of animals or people, Tamerlan wanted those couple of tigers on the walls of Sher Dor. This also proves that not everyone would dare to go for this except for Tamerlan himself that time!

This is the famous folklore musical band of Uzbekistan, SATO, who always do a great job in playing the traditional and classic Uzbek music in variety of versions. The clip below is made in Tashkent city, so now you can enjoy both Uzbek music arts and the view of its busy streets!

Stone City

Tashkent – the mirror of that beautiful country, through which you will be able to see pretty much whole Uzbekistan. This is the center, where variety of cultures come together and represent Uzbekistan in the best way possible!

The first thing you will notice in Tashkent is its cleanness. Washed roads every morning and evening, pavements with fresh green grasses on them, beautiful buildings of business, trade and world cuisines, all can immediately make you fall in love with the city.

What made me personally amazed is that you can walk around the city at midnight and guess what: there is nothing to be scared of! On pretty much every step you will the cops, who are actually there to provide peace for the citizens! And therefore, you will not be the only one enjoying the peace of cool night in summers…

Find Healing

The place we will visit today includes such qualities, as beauty, uniqueness, mystery and the most important one of them, benefit! That is not only the benefit of lightning up the mood, but  also healing certain illnesses in a person…

Welcome to the salt mine of Kyrgyzstan, which is located in Naryn province! This salt mine has been serving not only for getting this necessary substance, but also was turned into the special sanatorium in around 1980.

The sanatorium aims to cure the patients with allergic illnesses, the problems of breathing system, which include asthma, bronchitis and so on. There are spaces for more than a hundred patients inside, so they can come and spend some necessary time for such healing courses.

Asian Patagonia

Just like the “sister” of Great Canyons in the united states in Kyrgyzstan, there is another version of Patagonia in South America and they call it as Asian Patagonia!

You will find yourself in an incredibly huge area surrounded with mountains, trees and rivers with pristine water flowing. This mountain adventure is the perfect choice for especially this season – spring, when the nature is showing off all its beauty possible and giving fresh colors to the world.

I would advise you to take your time exploring the place, because it is once in a lifetime experience and you definitely want to enjoy the peace out of your daily worries for as much as possible.

Spring in Canyons

Anyone, who has heard of Grand Canyon of the United States must have a deep ambition to see it at least once in a lifetime. Wonderful dream it is, but what if there is no chance of reaching that place yet? Where else to search for something like that? Let me help you through this!

There is an interesting canyon in Kyrgyzstan, called Komorchek. The shape and color of this canyon reminds of that very Grand Canyon in the U.S. There are special tours to that place in spring, since it is one of the best seasons to visit.
