UZBEKISTAN. 1/4. Samarkand

Another fantastic postcard which adds to the previous one of Samarkand. What is special about it is that I received it from my swap friend Joerg from Germany and it's a photo of his which he printed as a postcard and sent from Germany.
Again, like the previous time that I got the other one blank from the ebay seller, it's not like the real thing - travelling directly from Uzbekistan, written and stamped. But without Joerg I wouldn't have managed to have it travelled at all! :)

Samarkand – Crossroad of Cultures

The historic town of Samarkand is a crossroad and melting pot of the world's cultures. Founded in the 7th century B.C. as ancient Afrasiab, Samarkand had its most significant development in the Timurid period from the 14th to the 15th centuries. The major monuments include the Registan Mosque and madrasas, Bibi-Khanum Mosque, the Shakhi-Zinda compound and the Gur-Emir ensemble, as well as Ulugh-Beg's Observatory.
