Uzbekistan is a beautiful country with a rich history and amazing sightseeing in cities like Samarkand, Bukhara, and Khiva. Once, it was at the heart of the Silk Road and attracted traders from all over the world. Nowadays, the country is opening up and easing its visa regime and we have good news: Citizens of all western countries except for the United States can enter Uzbekistan visa-free for a duration of up to 30 days.
