This is the most detailed guide to Central Asia's most populous country and the heart of the historic Silk Road. Strikingly beautiful yet little understood, Uzbekistan finally has a guide to inspire independent travelling, with all the in-depth practical information required, highlighting epic landscapes through to awe-inspiring architecture. Practical details are entwined with cultural, literary, social, religious and historical curiosities to make an entertaining companion and guide. It includes up-to-date and personal reviews of accommodation, restaurants and entertainment venues across all budgets. Alongside historical detail and anecdotes, exceptional colour photography brings to life places, people and local traditions as they appear today. Comprehensive bird-watching and wildlife sections are provided by experienced twitcher and BBC journalist Ben Tavener and there is a thorough introduction to the Uzbek and Russian languages.
