The architecture, literature, philosophy, but also the culinary specialties of Uzbek cuisine together with the «Way of Life» give an overall picture of the culture of the country. Throughout its history, Central Asia has absorbed very different cultural influences that are still perceived today through all five senses (sight, taste, hearing, smell, touch): Chinese influence arrived from the east, Indian, Persian and later Islam influence from the south. And from the north and west via the Russian Empire – modern Central Asia.
Cultural tours on the ground establish a connection to historical dates, facts and legends and put these into a broader cultural context. With DOCA TOURS, you will visit significant sites which bear witness to the cultural history along the Central Asian Silk Road and, with the help of your tour guide, discover its continued existence and role in the everyday lives of the local people.
