Samarkand and Bukhara – these two ancient cities were once one of the centers of world science, culture, art and architecture. LLC « Elite tours » offers you a profitable trip to Samarkand and Bukhara, where you can live in touch with the great history, see unique structures.
The heyday of Samarkand came during the reign of the great ruler of Amir Temur and his descendants, when the best architects, artists, carvers in stone and wood, sculptors and musicians of the medieval East came here.
Mausoleum Gur-Emir is the burial vault of the dynasty of the Temurids. He attracts attention with a beautiful entrance portal, decorated with jewelry executed designs. Then follows the tomb and the minaret, which also captivate the look with the refinement of the decoration and decor.
But nothing in Samarkand is so breathtaking as the grandiose ensemble Registan. Three madrasahs – Mirzo Ulugbek, Sherdor and Tillyakori – are a reflection of the great legacy of the equally great ancestors of the Uzbek people. It is on the stage set in the middle of the ensemble that the International Festival « Shark Taronalari » (« Melodies of the East ») is held every few years, which is a festival of folk music, songs and national dances.
It corresponds to the greatness of Samarkand and another wonderful city – Bukhara. Once upon a time, Bukhara was one of the main centers of Islamic culture. Therefore, a large number of mosques and madrassas were concentrated here.
Ensemble Lyabi-House attracts not only beautifully erected buildings, but also peace, which give guests a very near pond and shadows of centuries-old trees. This is a real paradise for those who want to retire for a while from everything, to be alone with themselves.
The mausoleum of the Samanids, numbering more than a thousand years, seems small compared to other architectural monuments. However, features of its design produce unusual visual effects. For example, from different angles and at different angles of the falling sun rays, the ornament on the walls of the mausoleum changes. It is interesting that during the construction of the mausoleum for the first time in Central Asia burned brick was used.
