It is one of the most ancient cities in the world and is the second largest city in the Republic of Uzbekistan. This is one of the oldest cities in the world and the central point of the Great Silk Road between China and Europe. Being the same age as ancient Athens and Rome, Samarkand has a thousand-year history.
