Uzbekistan is a Central Asian country and a previous Soviet republic. It's known for its mosques, sepulchers and different destinations connected to the Silk Road, the old exchange course among China and the Mediterranean. Samarkand, a noteworthy city on the course, contains a milestone of Islamic design: the Registan, a court circumscribed by 3 resplendent, mosaic-shrouded religious schools dating to the fifteenth and seventeenth hundreds of years.
