"Has there ever been a more memorable phrase "Silk road"? It conjures up visions of huge caravans and long desert trails leading to the most luxurious cities on Earth. Despite the fact that the Silk Road disappeared many centuries ago, its power and greatness can still bewitch.
Uzbekistan will make its debut in this ceremony thanks to its three historical cities on the Silk road – Bukhara, Samarkand and Khiva," the magazine's editors write on their website.
