Archaeologists of Uzbekistan discovered the legendary Alexandria Oksianskuyu August 22-27 in Tashkent, Samarkand and Termez for that reason it is planed to have a Heritage Week "Uzbekistan - the crossroads of great roads and civilizations: empire, religion, culture", anticipating the international conference "Preservation of tangible and intangible cultural heritage: actual problems and strategies to solve them" to be held in Samarkand on August 26, 2019.

 

 Guests on Uzbekistan tours during that Heritage Week in Terez will expect many stunning discoveries.

 

One of them is associated with the famous Alexandria of Oksiansky - the site of Kamtyrtepa, an archaeological monument, one of the oldest in Uzbekistan. These are the ruins of a port city on the Amu Darya (in ancient times Oaks), laid down at the end of the 4th century. BC. and existed before the beginning of the 1st c. AD. It is one of the popular places for all travelers during Uzbekistan tours.

 

It is here that the participants of the Week will be the first to announce the results of the great work carried out in recent years by reputable Uzbek scientists led by academician E. Rtveladze.

 

The world scientific community, the public and media representatives are waiting for sensational statements and evidence that the site of Kamtyrtep is the legendary Alexandria Oksianskaya, mentioned in the writings of the ancient Greek historian and geographer Ptolemy and a unique monument of Hellenistic culture in Central Asia.

 

Long-term studies of scientists and archaeologists under the leadership of E. Rtveladze allowed to make a conclusion about the localization of Alexandria Oksianskaya on the site of the site of ancient settlement Kampyrtepa. Among the archaeological data confirming this s: the first of all, the size of the city-port at that time, stretching along the Ox from west to east for more than 400 m, as well as a good-developed town-planning structure consisting of a strongly fortified — a fortress with gates, streets and sanctuary-temple, a necropolis and a harbor, which included a port with a lighthouse, a bay for parking ships and a pier, where there were trade points and craft (ceramic) workshops.

 

The archaeological data from the three sites, Ai-Khanum, Old Termez and Kampyrtep, analyzed by scientists show that only on Kampyrtepa were obtained convincing, unlike the first two, evidence of the foundation during the campaigns of Alexander the Great to Transoxian in 329–327. BC. a large settlement with a well-developed urban structure, powerful fortifications and capital buildings. In all likelihood, this is the legendary Alexandria Oxyana Ptolemy.

 

It consists of a main citadel surrounded by a moat, a “lower city” surrounded by a fortified wall with towers and an unfortified suburb.

 

Archaeologists have found here well-preserved cultural layers of the early Hellenistic, Greco-Bactrian and Kushan-Yuezhi eras. Numerous finds, as well as the peculiarities of the architecture of the settlement indicate that various religions and religions coexisted peacefully in Kampyrtepe over the centuries. Zoroastrians, Buddhists and admirers of ancient Greek gods, as well as followers of local cults lived here.

 

For the first time in the history of Uzbek science, the installation of Alexandria Oksiansky in 3D format will be presented to the participants of the Heritage Week, which will recreate the ancient settlement and allow you to get acquainted with this outstanding archaeological monument in its original appearance.

 

Also, to familiarize the general public with famous monuments of history and culture in the pocket book format, brochures "Alexandria Oksianskaya (Kampyrtepa)" and "Kushans: dynasty, people, writing" will be published. If you are planning to go on Uzbekistan tours in this period you are welcome to ask one of our tour operators to include this destination in your programs.

"I never imagined Uzbekistan was so beautiful!"

"Upon my return home, I came to the realization that Uzbekistan is one of the world's best kept secrets for tourism."

"I should have booked a longer itinerary with my Uzbekistan travel agencies!"

 

These are just a few of the typical comments we hear at Roxana Tour from our clients. Uzbekistan travel agencies throughout the country doubtless hear the same thing from their customers, too. Time after time, year after year, we listen closely to what people have to say about our beautiful country. While we encourage them to tell us what could be done to make their trip better, all of them prefer to spend most of their time talking about the good things and the grand experiences they had through our Uzbekistan tours. At the conclusion of every tour, we invite all of our guests to join us for dinner - whether it's for one or twenty-five! It's a wonderful and relaxful evening where our new friends can enjoy a light conversation in a friendly atmosphere. It's here where they can stretch their legs and release the thoughts of their trip to us. Invariably, the words that are spoken are reflected in their eyes when they talk about their magical Uzbekistan tours. Flying across the Kyzyl-kum desert as the sun rises; arriving in Khiva to tour the world's best outdoor museum; traveling by car to Bukhara and stopping by the side of the road to enjoy lunch in the same desert the flew over; friendly people at every stop whether it was a Roxana Tour, the bread-seller at the bazaar, or the concierge at the hotel. It didn't seem to matter where they were, the people were genuinely friendly. Camels, Kalyon, Samarkand, Amir Timur, the Great Silk Road...everything gets blurred together after a while, but the main theme is the total enjoyment that our customers experienced during their trip in Uzbekistan.

What do you think your quote will be at the conclusion of your Uzbekistan tours?

9b2ap3_thumbnail_hunting-in-uzbekistan-tour.jpg

On June 7, 201, the Institute for Legislative and Parliamentary Studies together with the Committee on Ecology and Environment Protection of the Legislative Chamber held a round table on the draft law “On Hunting and Fishing”. ,

The event discussed the current state of hunting and fishing, existing problems in the field and proposals for solving them.

 The country has 38 fishing farms with a total area of 406,000 hectares and a total of 608,000 hectares of hunting and fishing sports associations which is a great opportunity to include such objects into Uzbekistan tours packages. 

In particular, the draft law provides for the main directions of the state policy in the field of hunting, hunting zones, the rules and conditions for hunting, the main provisions of hunting. It clarifies the list of documents confirming the right to hunt, as well as the introduction of a system of state monitoring of game animals and their habitats. The bill for the first time indicates the amount of payments for hunting, based on the number of wild animals.

In order to fully develop hunting tourism in the country and make full use of these opportunities, the project proposes features of hunting for foreigners.

It was noted that the experience of foreign countries, in particular Germany, France, Japan, Turkey, Russia and Kazakhstan, was taken into account in the preparation of the bill.

It was emphasized that the adoption of the draft law will contribute to the rational use of wildlife resources, their registration, the regulation of their reproduction and maintenance, the development of hunting tourism and the improvement of the fishing industry. Meanwhile it is only possible to include such destinations on Uzbekistan tours without caring the hunting equipments such as guns including hunting dogs.

We are excited to the upcoming laws and regulations on hunting in Uzbekistan and Roxana Tour will make sure to have separate packages from standard Uzbekistan tours that will be dedicated for those who come here to explore the hunting opportunities in our country

We often have request from our clients to combine some natural resorts in their Uzbekistan tours, so they can try some wild life experience. Recently some of our travelers visited the new preserve center for Bustards.

 

The center for the protection of beauty bustards is located about 50 kilometers from the city of Navoi and 300 hectares in the desert zone in the southwestern part.

 

 

The Center was established in April 2008 on the initiative of Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President of the United Arab Emirates, Emir of Dubai.

 

 

The main activities of this organization called AYTAM are a set of activities aimed at supporting and maintaining sustainable management of the sustainable population of the Asian Corps in Uzbekistan, as well as annual campaigns to preserve wildlife.

 

 

On May 22 - International Day for Biological Diversity, AITAM and the Navoi Regional Department of Environmental Protection organized an event for the media and informed about:

 

“In 2007, for the first collection of wild birds, it was necessary to create the first livestock. The collection was held in 2012 with the permission of the Government of Uzbekistan. At the same time, in order to create a breeding ground for young birds that can breed additional birds released into the wild environment from 2008, the center works to increase the number of people under strict genetic control, said Rustam Tuhtamuradov, the head of the center.

 

 

The Asian bustard is a bird that lives in Central Asia. Flocks arrive in Uzbekistan in spring and breed in the region of Central Asia from March to June. In October, they fly to relatively hot countries - Afghanistan, Iran, Pakistan and the Arabian Peninsula.

 

The bustard spends most of his time in search of food on the ground. They prefer to live in the desert and semi-desert areas with a dry, ecologically clean and open area. This bird feeds on all sorts of plants and their seeds, small lizards, insects and other small vertebrates.

 

 

Most birds reach puberty at the age of two or three years. They attract their partners in the marriage period with a kind of dancing.

 

Layed eggs can hatch without the help of birds. It usually takes 21-22 days.

 

 

The swallow is a species of endangered species and is included in Appendix I to the Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Endangered Species that are classified as “weak” by the conservation community.

 

The main task of the Center is to implement an integrated strategy for the rehabilitation and protection of bird populations in Uzbekistan.

 

To achieve this, AYTAM is constantly developing new approaches in various fields, including ecology, physiology, nutrition and veterinary medicine. Comprehensive expert knowledge and fundamental and applied research are the basis of these approaches. Also they are considering including this destination to Uzbekistan tours packages in order to attract travelers and specialists from all of the world to share the experiences and knowledge.

 

The center has five departments for work.

 

The first is the care and reproductive care department. In this section, they collect eggs and conduct genetic research in the laboratory.

 

“In this section we have a total of 1980 birds. Of these, 841 are males, and 1139 are females. In this section, the birds feed mainly on nuts and worms. The daily egg is delivered to the hatchery, ” said Nilufar Husanova, department head.

 

The second is an incubation workshop. Eggs of birds are opened in special incubators in 21-22 days.

 

 

Third, watching and caring for chicks.

 

“In this section, the chicks are taken care of for ten days. During this time the birds feed every half hour. About fifty workers are engaged in this work during the day. There are currently about 750 chicks in the department, ”says Dilrabo Hashimova, head of the department.

 

Fourth Section, Deportation Department. Here ten-day birds are taught wildlife for twenty days. Then it is vaccinated and placed in special tunnels.

 

In the fifth stage, the birds prepare for the wild before the start of a new life.

 

In each process, the birds are under the control of staff and veterinarians. Currently French specialists are working in the center.

 

Belarusian environmental ornithologists conduct voluntary environmental and scientific research at the center.

 

The center employs 100 people. During the season, the number of employees is up to 200 people. 90% of workers are from Ortakul village, 15 km from the center and the remaining 10% are from the city of Navoi.

 

In the future, it is planned to build a fully integrated system. The new center will meet the objectives of the project and will be of higher quality.

 

The season for the release of birds into the wild is mainly September-October which can be considered as the highest season for Uzbekistan tours, which gives a great chance for the travelers who like to see the wild life events to participate in such days in the center. From 2012 to the present, the center has released about 10,000 young birds.

We have some good news for those who are looking for Uzbekistan tours, in accordance with the Decree of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan dated May 28, 2019 “On Amendments and Additions to Certain Acts of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan”, a new procedure for the operation of electronic entry visas has been established, which had been widely discussed among Uzbekistan travel agencies within few months.

 

Now days, since May 28, 2019 electronic entry visas are issued for a period of stay in the Republic of Uzbekistan up to 30 days from the date of entry and those who have successfully received such visa can stay in our country for ninety days, from the date of issuance.

 

According to the order in force until now, the e-visa was issued to a foreign citizen for a period of stay in the Republic of Uzbekistan up to 30 days with a single entry and in the case of a visa validity at the time of entry of a foreign citizen to the territory of the republic was less than 30 days, then the stay of a foreign citizen in The Republic of Uzbekistan should not have exceeded the validity period of the electronic visa.

 

All these innovations can be considered as the most comfortable conditions to the travelers that are going to be increased the average period of stay of each tourist in the country.

The first Smart Museum in Central Asia opened in the mausoleum of Amir Temur in Samarkand. Currently, the audio guide is available for ten exhibits in five languages - Russian, Uzbek, English, French and Korean.

The director of SmartChain LLC, Bobur Rakhimov, spoke about the first experience of creating a Smart Museum, its purpose and significance for the development of tourism. From his words it became clear that now visitors have the opportunity to get additional information about the exhibit and / or the mausoleum with modern interactive methods. Technical capabilities allow the visitor to be immersed in the atmosphere of long-gone years, places and events, to recreate historical scenes and images that clearly highlight historical and cultural traditions.

For visitors, the possibility is realized when using a smartphone (headphones are given to each visitor) to use the audio guide for the main exhibits. Directing the camera of the smartphone to the object of the exhibition, marked with an icon, the visitor is provided with a story about the object of art. Moving between the objects of the exhibition in the specified order, the visitor receives a full-fledged tour in a rhythm convenient for him. At the same time he will be able to listen to the information provided. Also, video fragments from historical chronicles were created to convey to the visitor a historical atmosphere.

Opportunities are not limited to excursion content. For example, an interactive Uzbekistan exposition consisting of four smart-pictures and eight 3D racks has been created on the territory of the mausoleum. The visitor receives interactive information about the historical regions of our country.

The first Smart-Museum in Central Asia opened in Samarkand
The technology of augmented reality on the NazzAR platform is a system of user interaction with objects of the surrounding world, using a smartphone. The user receives additional interactive content in the form of audio, video, 3D-scenes and objects. To get started, the user needs to install the NazzAR application available on Android and iOS devices on his smartphone.

B. Rakhimov noted that this project was implemented on the instructions of President Shavkat Mirziyoyev. During his visit to Samarkand in January of this year, when the system was presented to the head of state, he proposed to introduce it in all major historical monuments of the country. “Here is the first result. The implementation of our project in museums and monuments will allow recreating historical scenes of the past, “revitalize” a static image, convey the “spirit of the times” and immerse the visitor into the world of exposition. Using the NazzAR solution, the visitor is given the opportunity not only to hear about the exhibit or the exhibition, but also to see the history, ”said B. Rakhimov.

The first Smart-Museum in Central Asia opened in Samarkand
The presentation of the Smart Museum took place the other day while visiting its members of the Association for the Study of the Culture and Art of the Temurids from France. According to the interlocutor, the guests, who were headed by the President of the Association, the famous historian Frederic-Bopertuis Bressan, highly appreciated the possibilities of the technology of augmented reality.

The first Smart-Museum in Central Asia opened in Samarkand
Speaking about other possibilities of his offspring, B. Rakhimov stressed that immersion in virtual reality will begin at the entrance to Amir Temur’s crypt. Visitors will wear virtual reality glasses in Ziyoratkhan. Thus, the entrance to the crypt with the help of modern technology will open to the visitor an exciting scene, he will be able to see the crypt itself in a 360-degree view.

At the same time, for the convenience of visitors, an interactive map of the complex has been created, which, unlike a regular map, has interactive features. In particular, when you hover the smartphone on separate sections of the map, a 3D model of sights appears on the smartphone screen. Thus, the map is integrated into the overall solution and becomes part of an amazing journey through the museum. Following the prepared routes on the map, the visitor approaches the perception of the museum’s exhibits more holistically.

B. Rakhimov noted that interactive souvenir cards are being created to extend the visitor’s journey. By purchasing a set of souvenir cards, a visitor can later reuse video, audio, and 3D content, share impressions with friends and acquaintances. The use of such cards allows you to draw attention to the museum, its exhibits and exhibitions, as well as expand its audience.
