Culture of Uzbekistan

It can often seem that there are as many cultural traditions in Uzbekistan as there are people! For thousands of years, Uzbekistan has been a cultural melting pot of ideas, materials, and skills. Some of the cultural traditions are native to Uzbekistan; others have developed with influences from China, India, Persia, Russia, and beyond.

The people of Uzbekistan are rightly proud of their cultural heritage. They know about their history, can recite poetry, and admire the great works of ancient craftsmen. But Uzbekistan’s culture is alive and continually developing: you will find it in the street, as much as in museums and galleries. Wherever you go in Uzbekistan, you will find artists and designers, musicians and dancers, writers, actors, and sportsmen. All of these people are making their own, invaluable contribution to the modern culture of Uzbekistan, and we are proud to profile leading cultural figures and their work in every issue of Visit Uzbekistan magazine.

Clicking on one of the images above or the links below will give you a flavour of the cultures of Uzbekistan, as well as inspiration of what to see and do during your Uzbekistan tour. You can also browse issues of Visit Uzbekistan magazine for fascinating articles about Uzbekistan’s culture, past and present.
