The Navoi city was built relatively recently, in 1960, which gives it the status of the youngest city in the country.
It is located about 360 kilometers from Tashkent, on the banks of the Zarafshan River. It was created as the center of the mining industry, since precious metals and uranium were found in its vicinity. The city was named after the world-famous scientist, poet and statesman - Alisher Navoi. Despite the fact that the city is new, the history of the area that surrounds it has a long and rich history. Archaeologists have found on this territory many objects related to the culture of the ancient Bactrians, Khorezmians and Saks. Not far from the city, only 45 km away is the Sarmysh gorge. This is truly a legendary place!
On the territory of just 2 km. there are about 4,000 petroglyphs, among which are images of “ancient astronauts”.
Also, various anomalous phenomena occur in this gorge, which is why this area attracts ufologists and lovers of paranormal phenomena.
Today Navoi is one of the main industrial centers in Uzbekistan. Many large industrial enterprises are based here, producing everything, starting from gold and ending with a huge electrochemical factory.
