Must visit on your Day trip to Bukhara from Tashkent
The trip to Bukhara is on the high-speed Afrosiab train, which takes 4 hours to get to Bukhara from Tashkent. Even though the train departure is quite early, it’s possible to take a nap as you travel. Once you arrive in Bukhara, set off on a tour of the most interesting historical sights: ancient mosques, mausoleums and madrassas, and the Ark Fortress. You will see in one day what most tourists take 2-3 days to visit.
In the evening, after the tour, take a little time to rest in the Bukhara airport, before arriving back in Tashkent around midnight. Even though you might be exhausted after such a long trip, the memories you make will stay with you long after the exhaustion has faded!
Bukhara is very ancient city that in different times had been the center of different Empires and favorite place of many Great Dynasties. That is why Bukhara history is so rich and full with important events. It’s written in Shahnameh (which is very famous and very old wise poem in Iranian) that the founder of Bukhara was the King proudly named Siavash who belonged to mythical and legendary Pishdak Dynasty. The main reason why he chose this earth for his city is lucky location right on the Great Silk Road, good warm climate and many rivers.
And now in our days so rich history of Bukhara city still continues now when Bukhara became the part of independent Uzbekistan. The city changed not much, streets and buildings are the same. And to feel the atmosphere of those events described above all you need is to visit Bukhara within Uzbekistan tours and see all of its streets and architecture with your own eyes. Actually not many of the events of Bukhara history were documented, but there is book by Narshakhi “History of Bukhara” finally completed 944 CE and has many interesting facts about the old times of Bukhara: everyday life of its citizens, scholars, stories e t.c.
Before Islam became the main religion in Bukhara, there were two religions there – which are Manicheanism and Nestorian Christianity. But with the conqueror of Arabs not at once but gradually and with many years passed (after bloody and very exhausting legendary Battle of Talas) Islam became dominant religion and, as you know, it still stays this way.
Bukhara, so-called Holy city, is very interesting place where history can be seen very clearly. It has that unforgettable charm. This city has been the center of many Empires, even the center of one Great Religion, it was destroyed then built up from the ashes again, it brought to the world many good famous people, and it’s still standing under the warm sun of Uzbekistan.
