Samarqand sights

Post by Curt »

I am on a really tight schedule and wonder what is the minimum time needed to see the sights of Samarqand? Can all the main sights be covered in one day?

I had just one full day in Samarkand. And it was a really cold and raining day, which slowed our tour. Despite this, we were able to visit the Registan and its 3 madrassas, the Bibi Khanim mausoleum, Shahi necropolis and Gur Emir Mausoleum. The tour lasted 5 hours, including 1 hour for lunch. We missed the Ulugbke’s observatory and the Afrosiab museum. If the weather were better, I think we would had time and stamina to visit both, but still we were very satisfied with our tour.

Yes, they are all close to each other. A day will do.
