During your stay in Bukhara you will be shown many of the remarkable monuments and sights for which this city is renowned: the Ismail Samani Mausoleum, the Prophet Jobe's Well, the Ulugbek and Abdulaziz Khan Madrassahs and then on to Kalyan Square and Minaret, the tallest in Central Asia. Visit also the Mir-I-Arab Madrassah, the largest Muslim School in Uzbekistan and the Ark, an impressive fortress dating back 2000 years. These are just some of the 140 outstanding sights that have given Bukhara official status as a museum in itself.

Water management sights will include visits of Bukhara Branch of SPA "Cotton" and a trip to the Amu-Bukhara Canal 194 kilometers long and with a discharge of 124 cubic meters per second.

In the evening of the seventh day you will take a trip to Khiva, where you will be accommodated in the private hotel "Arkanchi", located on the territory of the ancient part of the city.
