Samarkand II

We traveled from Tashkent to Samarkand by high-speed train. While being one of the oldest inhabitant cities in central Asia, the modern town lies besides the remnants of historic Afrasiyab. Registan square, Gur-i-Amir mausoleum, Shah-i-Zinda necropolis and ruins of Bibi-Khanym Mosque - all impressive, hard to pick a favourite.
