Tour map

The cultural Two-Day Week-End Tour-1: Khiva with its innumerable mysteries and enigmas will be an unforgettable adventure for true connoisseurs of refinement and antiquity of the East. The Museum Town, aged more than 2500 years old, once being one of the most important center on the Great Silk Road route, the “Eighth Wonder of the World” – all this is about Khiva, the pearl of the Khorezm Oasis. One of the most beautiful cities of the world meets travelers with gloomy grandeur of the Itchan-Kala Fortress, an ancient eastern town, which exists outside the time. All over the world, cities are built up with modern skyscrapers of dizzy height and wide highways, year by year, more and more, losing its original look, while Khiva managed to preserve its lanes, old-time bitten cob constructions and famous architectonic monuments in a state of nature.

Trip to Kyzylkum Desert (150 km, 1,5-2 h) and visiting of archaeological monuments of Ancient Khorezm: you will visit Kyzyl-Kala - a unique monument of Ancient Khorezm architecture relevant to Kushan- Afrigid period of antique history, Toprak-Kala -ancient settlement which was the capital of Khorezm in the III century AD. Not without reason Toprak-Kala is called "the museum of fine arts of Ancient Khorezm". It is the only completely dug out monument of architecture of Khorezm. Its sizes and genius of architectural design make Toprak-Kala one of the most unique monuments of Khorezm. There is a legend that the ancient subterranean passage connects Toprak-Kala and Kyzyl-Kala. It is quite possible that Kyzyl-Kala carried out the protective functions. Then we’ll visit one of the largest fortresses of Ancient Khorezm – Ayaz-Kala, II century AD, relevant to the period of Kushan Empire prosperity. Ayaz- Kala was neither a city nor a settlement, it was a fortress complex where nearly 19 centuries ago boundary groups of Kushan dynasty settled down.
