Samarkand looks like a beautiful and well-preserved historical place. It makes sense because it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. I’ve heard a lot about it from my parents. Its rich and varied ancient history that includes Mughals, Persians, and Greeks, has always interested me a lot and I would love to experience it one day.
