Uzbekistan: The golden road to Samarkand
The golden road to Samarkand is what we’ve come to expect from Odyssey travel guides: a large, comprehensive book on the country, with practical information intermixed with history and culture. Lots of pictures aid you in your travel choices, and the book reads wonderfully.
It was updated in 2014, making this the best choice for discerning readers traveling to (or simply interested in) Uzbekistan.
