Tourism to the ‘Stans’ is increasing as these former parts of the Soviet Empire find their way in a changing world. This map covers Uzbekistan on one side and Kyrgyzstan & Tajikistan on the reverse side. The map also includes excellent inset maps of Samarkand, Tashkent, Dushanbe, and Bishkek. Needless to say, all three countries count as ‘adventure’ travel. Facilities are good in major cities, but roads are of an uncertain quality, and accommodations sparse. Still, this is an exceptionally interesting part of the world. The traditional Great Silk Road passed through this region, and to this day Tashkent is a major trading transfer point. Nine points of major interest are included, including the Ark-Citadel dating from 400BC, the Minaret of Kalta-Minor, and the great Caravanserai from the Middle Ages.
