A small town on the infamous Silk Road, the turquoise minarets and domes of Khiva stand out like glittering jewels amongst a sea of ochre mud bricks. Discover the winding mazes of the 19th century Stone Palace and the intricately tiled Kutli Murad Inak Medressa, before watching traditional silk carpets being created by master craftsmen in the bazaar. Khiva is Uzbekistan at its ancient best.

For its diminutive size, Khiva packs a hearty historical punch. UNESCO listed for its immaculately preserved Islamic architecture, it is one of Uzbekistan’s greatest treasures. Without a doubt the most magical way to experience Khiva is to walk the ancient mud walls that surround the city at sunset, as the minarets become silhouetted against the darkening sky.
