- The main reason why I wanted to come to Uzbekistan was Samarkand! I take much interest in Oriental architecture. But when I came to Uzbekistan, I, of course, couldn’t help visiting Bukhara and Khiva. And I so much liked Khiva! It is my belief that Samarkand with its outstanding monuments of architecture is one of the most beautiful and amazing cities in the world. I’ve had the desire to visit Samarkand since I saw the photographs of my colleagues who had already travelled there. Those ancient names of architectural ensembles sounded to me like fairy tales! I feel so peacefulhere, much more peaceful than in my country:-)… You can tell this to the King of my country, to the Minister and all the other officials!
