On December 14, President of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev announced plans to turn Shahrisabz into the "City of Festivals".
Shahrisabz in Persian means - Green City. It is the second largest city in Kashkadarya region. The city has an eventful history. Shahrisabz keeps pace with the times, new houses and buildings are being built, but the main factor is the preservation of the surrounding nature and ancient architecture.
The plans of the President became known during the meeting in Karshi, where the administration of districts took part.
Shavkat Mirziyoyev emphasized that in 2018 more than 63 thousand tourists visited Shahrisabz, which signifies a low interest of foreigners.
To enhance this situation, the head of Uzbekistan instructed the state Committee for Tourism Development and the Administration of Kashkadarya region to prepare a plan on transforming Shahrisabz to the City of Festivals.
