Following the footsteps of Silk Caravans

All branches of the Great Silk Road, which led to Eastern Turkestan and China, India and South Caucasus, Iran and Byzantium and further to Europe, intersected in Central Asia, on the territory of modern Uzbekistan. Silk, which gave name to this highway, was an important but not the only article of trade on caravan routes. Stopping places that emerged at the crossroads of busy caravan routes more than two thousand years ago gave rise to the largest cities such as Tashkent, Samarkand, Bukhara, Khiva, Termez and Shakhrisabz. Here the nations mixed up; whole empires rose and fell, religious and philosophical doctrines emerged and were propagated.
