Why is it worth going to Uzbekistan?

In the 21st century, when the whole world is available for travelers, why do many choose Uzbekistan? What does this small country in Central Asia have to offer?

Uzbekistan possesses a unique collection of archaeological and architectural monuments of various eras, from the time of Alexander the Great to Nicholas II. Along with historical sites, Uzbekistan has many modern sights and natural beauties that are millions of years old.

Traveling to Uzbekistan is a great option for a small budget, as all-inclusive guided tours are much cheaper than trips to Europe or America. Inexpensive transportation, cheap food, a large selection of simple hotels and hostels have opened the way for independent travelers and backpackers.

Uzbekistan has become more open to the world: in recent years, the rules of entry have been simplified. Citizens of many countries can easily get an e-visa, and some have access to visa-free entry into the country for up to 30 days. Upon arrival in Uzbekistan, tourists can easily get to major tourist centers connected by railways and flights, and in cities, you are happy to provide a wide range of hotels.

At the same time, Uzbekistan can offer many more little-known, wild, and remote places that will appeal to fans of adventure and unusual destinations. Here you do not have to stand in a crowd of tourists, and you can enjoy the beauty of nature and ancient monuments in silence.
