"Further reading (websites)" Top 5 Page for this destination Samarkand Favorite Tip by Trekki

Samarkand General: 24 reviews and 44 photos

Favorite thing: Some websites will give you further reading and information. Some are of travel agencies, but they still have a lot of interesting information.

Travel Agency Orexa

Sairam Tours - Samarkand

Samarkand?s website

Samarkand at UNESCO

Timur?s Samarkand by Mark Dickens, with a lot of interesting reading, sights to see, architecture and Timurid period.

The most facinating and very detailed site about Samarkand?s architecture however is available only in German. But I can highly recommend to read it, as Bernhard Peter has put a lot of effort and knowledge into it:

Architecture of Samarkand , and then Samarqand.

(I might add more websites in the future, as I plan to go back)
