“In books I have traveled, not only to other worlds, but into my own” 

Anna Quindlen.

Bukhara is Great Silk Road.

Bukhara is one of the pearls of the Great Silk Road. There were more than 60 caravanserais, where merchants from India, China, Iran and other countries stayed. Bukhara remained a fertile oasis, a major scientific and cultural center on the Great Silk Road.
The fact that the city was located at the crossroads of caravan roads is evidenced by the trade domes of the XVth - XVIth centuries. Toki Sarrafon (dome changed), Toki Telpak Furushon (dome of headwear sellers), Toki Zargaron (dome of jewelers), still in existence today.
The Great Silk Road is a peculiar phenomenon in the history of human development, its striving for unity and exchange of cultural values, the conquest of living space and markets for goods. This largest transcontinental trade route in the history of mankind connected Europe and Asia, and in former times stretched from ancient Rome to the ancient capital of Japan, Nara.
It is important to note that this path was never a single highway, but included various routes that branched out like the crown of a mighty tree. So, one of the main roads crossing Asia from east to west began in the capital of ancient China, Chang'an, and followed its north-western borders.
Having crossed the Tien-Shan, part of the caravans went through the Fergana Valley and the Tashkent oasis to Samarkand, Bukhara, Khorezm, then to the shores of the Caspian and Black Seas, the countries of the Volga region and the Caucasus.
