A city of over 2 million, Tashkent is the capital of Uzbekistan and the administrative and cultural center for much of Central Asia. It is as famous for its lively bazaars and historical monuments as it is for its arts districts and the monumental architecture of the past two decades. It is also known for its many museums and its mix of modern and Soviet-era architecture. The Amir Timur Museum houses manuscripts, weapons and other relics from the Timurid dynasty. Nearby, the huge State Museum of History of Uzbekistan has centuries-old Buddhist artifacts. The city’s skyline is distinguished by Tashkent Tower.
Since this program is small, CLI customizes it to individual students. Excursion and activity schedules vary year to year, but may include:
- City of Samarkand
- City of Bukhara
