The Registan is one of the highlights of all Central Asia. Just amazing to see from both outside and inside. I found really interesting the photos inside that showed how things were 100 years ago in ruins and how they look now.

A must see in Samarkand. Registan is one of the most amazing places in Uzbekistan. Here it all comes together: beautiful view, historic buildings, nature. Also there is an old minaret you can climb to take amazing pictures of Samarkand.

It’s the only place that is a must see in a city as big as Samarkand. It’s worth at least 2 trips, at least once at early evening when the lights go on. The guards are not shy about selling you the extra, supposedly forbidden,...More
