The 15th century city of Bukhara was a major trading center for silk and spices. Today it is the backdrop for the annual Silk to Spice Festival. A three day event that celebrates the city’s historical and cultural heritage, music, costumes, dancing and puppets. The live performances just take your breath away! This is how a muslim country should be, not a burka or hijab in sight!

The festival takes place in the historic atmosphere of the old city, among the mosques, trading domes and minarets. This festival offers the best of what Central Asia has to offer.
