Holiday in Uzbekistan

Uzbekistan is the only doubly landlocked country in Central Asia and one of only two such countries worldwide. It shares borders with Kazakhstan to the west and to the north, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan to the east, and Afghanistan and Turkmenistan to the south.

Once part of the Persian Samanid and later Timurid empires, the region was conquered in the early 16th century by nomads who spoke an Eastern Turkic language.

Uzbek Cuisine is influenced by local agriculture including prolific grain farming, so breads and noodles are of importance and Uzbek cuisine can be called “noodle rich”. Mutton is a popular variety of meat due to the abundance of sheep in the country. Uzbekistan’s signature dish is Palov (Plov or Osh), a main course typically made with rice, pieces of meat, and grated carrots and onions.

Green tea is the national hot beverage taken throughout the day; teahouses (Chaikhanas) are of cultural importance. The more usual black tea is preferred in Tashkent, both green and black teas are taken daily without milk or sugar.

Uzbekistan has 14 wineries, the oldest and most famous being the Khovrenko Winery in Samarkand (est. 1927). Uzbek wines have received international awards and are exported to Russia and other countries.

Uzbekistan is best visited from April to June and from late August to November, in the gaps between the extreme hot and cold.
