A new documentary, “Unknown Uzbekistan – Travelling by train across the Silk Road,” was broadcasted on the famous German-French cultural TV Channel ARTE during primetime. ARTE Channel has a multimillion viewership rating.
This 44-minute documentary about Uzbekistan presented our country from the modern-day perspective, including Uzbekistan’s historical monuments and people, who are proud of their traditions and culture.
“Such cities as Samarkand, Bukhara, Khiva, and Tashkent have been providing the necessary infrastructure for the trade caravans of the Great Silk Road. The historical buildings and constructions that remained in the territory of Uzbekistan are pieces of evidence for the power and wealth that the Silk Road trade has brought to the oasis cities of the route. Uzbekistan still has plenty of those monuments of the Great Silk Road” – quoted by the authors of the movie.
Tashkent was mentioned as a young and prosperous city – the capital of Uzbekistan, with over 2 million residents. Uzbek people’s warm hospitality and sincere and generous welcome have deeply impressed the German filming team.
While admiring the magnificence of the city, the film authors highlighted Samarkand as one of the most ancient cities of the world today. Samarkand has a history of over 2700 years and is known for its historical monuments, architectural masterpieces, as well as its famous expensive silk carpets.
The next episode was dedicated to Shakhrisabz, another historical city of Uzbekistan. The powerful ruler of world history, Amir Timur, known as Timur the Lame or Tamerlane, the founder of the Timurid Empire, was born in Shakhrisabz in the 14th century.
The next stop was Bukhara – the sacred city of Uzbekistan with centuries-old history. The last destination of the German team was Kyzylkum – an Aral Sea region. The sad tragedy of the Aral Sea and its causes were raised during the documentary by the authors.
