From Nukus to Khiva through ancient fortresses

We start our fascinating journey from Nukus. Our first stop is Chilpik (1st century AD), a symbol of Zoroastrian culture. As we ascend to the Tower of Silence, we'll immerse ourselves in the atmosphere of ancient rituals and mystique.

The Baday-Tugai Reserve is a true oasis established to protect tugai forests along the Amu Darya River and serves as a home to many animals: wild boar, tolai hare, fox, jackal, jungle cat (the largest cat in Central Asia), badger, marten, steppe polecat, long-eared hedgehog, and numerous rodents. Of course, the Bukhara deer is especially valued here.

Visit the fortress of Kyzyl-Kala (1st-7th centuries), an impressive example of ancient architecture, embedded in the history of Khorezm. We'll feel the grandeur of ancient times and witness architectural masterpieces.

Explore the Toprak-Kala Palace city (1st-4th centuries AD), the residence of Khorezmian kings. Walking through its walls, we'll delve into ancient times and important events of history.

Encounter the majestic Ayaz-Kala fortress (2nd-7th с ВС), which defended the oasis from nomadic raids. With its breathtaking view of the Kyzylkum Desert and history of the Kushan Empire.
