UZBEKISTAN - Historic Centre of Bukhara

"Bukhara, which is situated on the Silk Route, is more than 2,000 years old. It is the most complete example of a medieval city in Central Asia, with an urban fabric that has remained largely intact. Monuments of particular interest include the famous tomb of Ismail Samani, a masterpiece of 10th-century Muslim architecture, and a large number of 17th-century madrasas." -

My very first written and stamped card from Uzbekistan!
It took more than 2 months to arrive! *but worth the wait*
Thank you so much Gulchekhra!
"On the card you can see the Sheikh-Djalil gate in Bukhara...", she shares...
