Tour to Khujand, Tajikistan

One of the most ancient cities in Central Asia with its fascinating history, Khujand is more than 2500 years old. It has seen troops of Alexander the Great who is believed to marry Roxana, a daughter of local ruler. Alexander captured the city, fortified and renamed it to Alexandria Eschate as a symbol of north boundary of his state. The city was defeated by Arabs and converted to Islam in VII century. In the beginning of XIII century after two years of desperate fights Khujand was demolished by Genghis Khan Army. Middle Ages are characterized by the burst of science, culture and economy which was explained by strategic location of the city in the centre of the Great Silk Road.
