Bukhara is a city on the historic Silk Road, situated between Samarkand and Khiva, the 2 other gems of Uzbekistan. Bukhara is central Asia’s holiest city and was once home to more than 300 mosques and 100 medressas. In the 9th and 10th centuries, it was the region’s religious and cultural heart, hosting the famed philosopher-scientist Avicenna as well as the Persian poets Firdausi and Rudaki. http://caravanistan.com/places/magic-of-bukhara/
