Uzbekistan leaves you spellbound with its beautiful monuments and architecture. But you literally hold your breath till you are in Bukhara, the museum-city where every building, alley and brick breathes history.
There are some 140 centuries-old monuments in Bukhara with its historical centre included in the Unesco World Heritage List.
For the tourists and other visitors planning to visit Bukhara for leisure or work, there will have a magnificent hotel to put up in the later half of 2024.
The yet to be named hotel is coming up in the city centre over an area of 0.8 hectares.
The hotel, once opened, will be able to host visitors in its 301 rooms, including 1 Presidential suite, besides three conference rooms and a restaurant with 600 seats.
It has a swimming pool, sauna and massage rooms. The building consists of seven floors and an attic (on the 8 floor).
At this time, the 5th floor is under construction which is likely to be completed by September 2024.
The hotel will be a star attraction in Bukhara which has a history dating back to more than 2500 years. According to legend, the city was founded by the Persian prince Siyavush, to whom the vassal state was handed over as a wedding gift by the ruler of Samarkand Afrasiab. In the center of the state was erected a fortress “Ark”, which was surrounded by settlements of artisans.
At one time, the city fell to Alexander the Great, later the Arab conquerors and was subjected to destruction by Genghis Khan. In 1370 Bukhara became part of the empire of Timur.
The city was the largest trade centre on the Great Silk Road. A visit to Bukhara is also about soaking in the beauty of Poi Kalyan (“the foot of the Great Minaret”), an architectural ensemble centered around the Kalyan Minaret built by Arslan Khan (1127 – 1129) and consisting of the majestic Kalyan mosque and the Mir-i Arab Madrassah (1527-1536).
