More than half of Uzbekistan’s population lives in urban areas, and many of the country’s cities were founded thousands of years ago. In fact, when Alexander the Great conquered what is now Uzbekistan in the 4th century BC, he proclaimed, “Everything I have heard about Maracanda [Samarkand] is true, except that is even more beautiful than I had imagined.”
