Adventures in Uzbekistan
(Non-tourist places of Uzbekistan)
Do you remember your childhood filled with grandmother's fairy tales? Were there oriental tales with young oriental beauties, with good and evil khans, with cunning merchants and noble youths? This tour is an oriental fairy tale with hot deserts and green gardens, with ancient cities, magnificent palaces, noisy bazaars, amazing mosques, picturesque streets, with houses of great masters who pass on the subtleties of their skills from generation to generation, revealing secrets only to their students who proudly bring new works of art to the world.
You will see small villages and huge cities, visit the banks of rushing rivers and find yourself in an arid desert without a hint of moisture, where camels - ships of the deserts sail slowly casting long shadows on the red sand.
Great cities such as Samarkand, Bukhara and Tashkent certainly deserve to be seen, but there are more colorful places in Uzbekistan that are not visible to a regular tourist following the usual popular routes. It is on these unpopular places that we would like to stop your attention, because these small towns and villages show the real life of people without embellishment, here you can see the real culture, real ancient traditions and family way of life.
Uzbek cuisine is a real gustatory paradise for guests of this country. Uzbek pilaf which is cooked differently in different parts of Uzbekistan, with so many sorts of additives, spices and ingredients. The most delicious juicy manti (big meat dumplings), lagman (vegetables with meat), hot lepyoshka (flat bread) and unique Uzbek sweets with various types of dried fruits.
Everyone will find something of their own in this country that will make the heart flutter, something that will be secretly placed in a separate corner of long-term memory, from which bright pictures will later emerge as soon as someone talks about the East.
It is worth going here once to say with confidence - now I understand what oriental hospitality, oriental delicacies and oriental art are.
