Tour map

This Two-Day Khiva Tour from Tashkent is an opportunity to experience the ethereal beauty and unique atmosphere of Khiva. The city itself is more than 2,500 years old, and was once one of the most important cities on the Silk Road, near the Khorezm Oasis. Today, Khiva is an open-air museum with winding streets, intricate tile decorations, and bustling city life. In only two days, you will get to know this charming little city and its history, explore its monuments, and get a taste for life on the Silk Road. Explore Ichan-Kala, the central fortress in Khiva, which holds the majority of the main sights and is a strikingly intact medieval city.

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.
