#26 – Ancient Khiva City, UZBEKISTAN

The most impressive city along the Great Silk Road of Uzbekistan

The city of Khiva is arguably the most impressive city along the Great Silk Road of Central Asia. Khiva is an ancient and well preserved city which is still inhabited today. As far back as the 10th century, Khiva was a major trading centre on the Great Silk Road where caravans of camels stopped here on their way from China and back. From dawn to dusk when these large gates were open, a stream of camels with baggage passed through. What a sight it would have been!
