Even sharp-witted and merry sage Nasreddin Hodja became the main character of hundreds of parables and anecdotes thanks to you. Today, choosing a travel package and going on tours to Bukhara, travelers from around the globe feel your light charm emanating from the ancient architectural monuments.

People seeking to see you often ask: “In what season does your beauty reach the pick of its splendor and sightseeing is most favorable?” Still, only those who live on your fertile land know that you are always gorgeous: when golden leaves adorn you, when apricot trees are in bloom, in the summer afternoon and during a winter storm. In March, your guests can acquire a better knowledge of your traditions and culture during the celebration of Navruz holiday. April will greet travelers with warm weather (just like September and October), and May — with the annual Silk and Spices Festival during which craftsmen introduce everyone to real works of art. August will be remembered for the aroma of the Melon Festival dedicated to the fruit that is good both as a treat and as a decorative object.

Some even spare no effort and time and cover all the way to you by train. Whatever the journey was, you always greet every guest with your splendor.
