Khiva City Tour: one-day trip and excursion

Khiva is a magical city, a maze of clay buildings and winding alleys, all surrounded by a thick fortress wall. The center of the city is a fortress, called Itchan-Kala, that has housed several thousand people in a medieval city for centuries. There are a number of outstanding buildings, including Kalta-Minor, a fat and short minaret decorated with intricate blue tiles, and Juma Mosque, whose ceiling is supported by 213 carved wooden columns with different designs. But perhaps the best reason to tour Khiva is to just experience the city as a whole. Khiva has retained its medieval feel, though there are people living inside its walls to this day. On this one-day tour, it’s easy to imagine the ways that merchants must have walked through the same streets as you yourself take this walking sightseeing tour of Khiva.
