It also boasts more than 7,000 monuments of different epochs and civilisations, four UNESCO sites (the Historic Centre of Bukhara, the Historic Centre of Shakhrisyabz, Itchan Kala in Khiva, Samarkand, and the Western Tien-Shan Mountains), and 30 sites on the Tentative List). In addition to built structures, the country’s topography and cultural practices allow for a vast range of activities for tourists to experience in all provinces.

Expert analysis from a specialist in the field

Written by Jessica Kelly, a leading analyst in the Tourism sector, her extensive knowledge delivers in-depth commentary and analysis to highlight current trends and add expert context to the numbers.

Uzbekistan’s tourism is headed in an upward trajectory both in terms of arrivals numbers and an encouraging investment environment. Although the country is rich in cultural heritage attractions, it is aiming to expand its tourism offerings such as ecotourism, adventure tourism and gastronomy, to appeal to a broader tourist base and to spread tourism revenue throughout all its provinces. With further innovations such as the elimination of visa requirements from more countries or a regional Silk Road Visa, it surely will be viewed as the hub of Central Asia. Jessica Kelly
