8 things to do in Samarkand

Samarkand. City of Legend. Although these days most people have probably never heard of it. It’s in Uzbekistan, which in all fairness a lot of people haven’t heard of either. Samarkand was founded by the Sogdians, sometime between the 7th & 8th Centuries BC. It profited from it’s prime location on the Silk Road, and all sorts of things have been traded in its bazaar (still open today).
