The center of Bukhara is full of historical sites, from the simple to the ornate. Bukhara was built on an oasis, so that water for this desert city was provided through ponds, the last remaining of which is Lyabi-Hauz. The pond itself is surrounded by mosques and madrassas, and as you continue along the tour, you’ll see that there’s a sight around every corner. Alongside the Lyabi-Hauz Ensemble, the Chor-Minor Madrassa (with its distinctive four towers) and the Kalyan Minaret (one of the few structures in Bukhara not destroyed by the Mongols) are some of the most famous structures in Bukhara. Another important and symbolic stop is the Ark Fortress, which housed generations of royal families and is now a history museum. For those who love history, architecture, and art, the one-day Bukhara City Tour is the best tour for getting to know this welcoming city.
