Uzbekistan, at one time, was the center of powerful ancient empires and international trade. The cities of Bukhoro, Khiva, Samarqand and the capital city of Tashkent, once located on the ancient Silk Road, still contain well-preserved relics of their Muslim and Oriental history, including stunning mosques and squares.

Recently, eco-tourism in Uzbekistan has increased, and numerous tours are now available. And in that regard, all tourists are advised to use experienced tour operators when traveling into Uzbekistan.

Note: Travelers to Uzbekistan should exercise a high degree of caution. Recent reports indicate terrorists may be planning attacks in this country. The U.S. Department of State and other countries advise against non-essential travel to areas bordering Afghanistan, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan due to the unstable security situation.

It is important to maintain a high level of personal security awareness at all times and to avoid crowds and demonstrations.
