Learn Uzbek through conversations

As one of Central Asia’s most compelling tourist destinations, Uzbekistan calls to the adventurous, curious traveler. Known for its treasure trove of archaeological artifacts and ancient cities, a visit to Uzbekistan allows you to slip back in time. Visit the ornate Kalon Minaret built in 1127, and dig into the past at the History Museum of the People of Uzbekistan. Modern Uzbekistan has just as much to offer as its storied past. Rock climb the Uzbekistan Mountains, shop for fresh melons and kurpacha (sitting mattresses) at Chorsu Bazaar, and strike up a conversation with the region’s friendly locals.
