Ark - Bukhara Fortress, Bukhara: 23 reviews and 41 photos

  Buchara, view from top of The Ark
by chrisvandenbroucke

Entrance fee: 1925 sum
To see: a nice Juma Mosque and some museums (most of them were closed when I was there).
Too expensive. I wouldn't recommend to do it.
We went to the top of the castle (passed an open metal door) but were whistled back by a police-agent who wanted my photo-camera (Forbidden, no pictures) and my friends videocamera.
We neglected this corruption and just walked away.
I have one nice picture from the top

Address: Buchara, 10 minutes from the centre

Review Helpfulness: 1 out of 5 stars
