Bukhara is the place where you can come in contact with the history of Uzbekistan and become completely engrossed in great antiquity for a short period of time. Basically, the experience showed that one day is not enough for most of the tourists to see all the beauty of the region because there are many famous attractions worthwhile to see traveling Bukhara.

Splendor of Bukhara and its sights makes the city a fundamental part of tourism in Uzbekistan. It is important to highlight the most remarkable places of the city for visitors, however native people can argue regarding this:

The Ark of Bukhara: massive fortress – citadel, where the rulers of the city resided. Most of the items, stored in the Ark, are associated with the last ruler Alim Khan. You can visit the rooms where the governor stepped his foot, touch his garment, and sit down on a majestic throne;

Architectural Complex “Po-i-Kalan”: Residents of Bukhara consider it as the center of the old city. There you can find Mir-i Arab Madrassah, Kalân Mosque, and the minaret of the same name;

Architectural Complex “Lab-i Hauz”: Lab-i-Hauz is an architectural complex as well as Po-i-Kalan. The area of Lab-i-Hauz is surrounded by two madrassahs: Kukeldash and Divan-Begi, Khanaka Divan-Begi, and residential areas. There is a small pond in the central part of the square.

City Synagogue: The synagogue is located deep inside the residential areas since the diaspora of Bukharan Jews are living in Bukhara. The building of synagogue is unremarkable by its external view. However, there are two prayer halls and colorful small courtyard inside the temple.

Best of Bukhara merchants concentrate their business at the Bazaar “Toki Sarrofon”: the market has been operating from XVI century. Money exchange and book trade had taken place at Toki Sarrofon, while nowadays visitors can purchase souvenirs related to the history of Bukhara.

Bukhara attractions are not limited and our guidelines are full with not only the sights listed above, but with another lot of buildings which deserve to have an additional attention. However, in the framework of this feature it is difficult to mention every single graceful structures the region has for now.
