Uzbekistan is a Central Asian nation and former Soviet republic.
It’s known for its mosques, mausoleums and other sites linked to the Silk Road, the ancient trade route between China and the Mediterranean.
Samarkand, a major city on the route, contains a landmark of Islamic architecture, known as the Registan; a plaza bordered by three ornate, mosaic-covered religious schools, dating back to the 15th and 17th centuries.

So, why not take a look at this video and see what you think?
