On February 10, Kazakhstan’s TV channel “Khabar-24” aired a story titled “The Turkic world will become more accessible for tourists” which was about the opening of a tourist corridor between the countries of Central Asia. The countries have developed a special tourist corridor, which starts in Kyrgyzstan and ends in Turkey. It will cover several states, including Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan and Azerbaijan.

A bonus for travelers will be a visa-free regime within this route. At this stage, the project is at the stage of coordination and it will be launched within the next few years.

Tourists of this unique route will be able to be to view the most popular sights of these countries included in the route.

For example, Registan is considered the hallmark of Uzbekistan and one of the main destinations for tourists. The historical square of Samarkand is included in the tourist corridor along with other objects of Turkic history.

Last spring, the city of Turkestan in southern Kazakhstan was recognized as the spiritual capital of the Turkic world. There are more than 50 sacred places worth visiting in the ancient city. Among them is the mausoleum of Ahmad Yasawi, the great Turkic Sufi poet and thinker of the 12th century.

Recall that in 2020, the city with 2,700 years of history - Khiva was declared the cultural capital of the Turkic world.

Objects located along the key routes of the Great Silk Road will connect the tourist corridor. The route will start in Kyrgyzstan, then through Kazakhstan, travelers will get to Turkestan, from there they will go through Samarkand and Bukhara to Turkmenistan, then to Azerbaijan and Turkey. The creation of a corridor will simplify border crossings, as a visa-free regime will be introduced for tourists here.

“Uzbekistan proposes the implementation of a project where the sights of the Turkic states will be collected. Our countries have great potential in this direction. The religion of Islam spread here. It will be a new kind of tourism.” - says the deputy press secretary of the organization of Turkic states Mirzokhid Azimov.

The relevant departments of the member countries of the Council of Turkic Speaking States will work on the project of the tourist corridor.

Recalling that the last meeting was held in November 2021 in Samarkand, and the next meeting will be held in Baku in 2022.
