Where is Uzbekistan located?

Uzbekistan is located in the Central Asia. Uzbekistan is the most populated country among all the other Central Asian Republics. Today Uzbekistan with its numerous ancient monuments, rich culture, history & nature is the most popular tourist destination than the other countries in region. Uzbekistan is located on the crossroads of Great Silk Road therefore hospitality became a nature of Uzbek people.

Although the country is developing and becoming more modern but people strictly follow their traditions, greet each other with “Assalomu Alaykum” (God bless you!),host any stranger a cup of tea with dry fruits by saying “Welcome”.
