The city of Samarkand is more than two and a half millennia old, and the Registan once served as the main city square, where people from around the globe traveling the Silk Road stopped to trade in its bustling markets. Today, it’s one of Uzbekistan’s must-visit attractions and a study in medieval architecture.

The madrassas that surround the square on three sides – among the world’s oldest – are covered in azure tile work. A photo exhibit within the Tilla-Kari Madrassa shows what old Samarkand once looked like in the early 1900s, including photos of the ruined madrassas before they were restored by the Soviets beginning in 1918. The Ulugh Beg Madrassa is the oldest of the three, dating back to the early fifteenth century, while the seventeenth century Sher-Dor Madrassa is notable for the tiger mosaics on its facade.

Practical Info

Entrance tickets to the Registan are good for the entire day, allowing you to revisit the square when the sun is at different positions.
