DESCRIPTION

The city was founded more than 2500 years ago and for a long time served as the center of the legendary Khorezm government. The rich heritage that has survived to this day turns Khiva into one of the most interesting places in the East. The city is called the “open-air museum” due to the inner city of Ichan-Kala, which became the first UNESCO World Heritage Site in Central Asia. In addition to history and architecture, Khiva is also famous for its local craft schools for the manufacture of jewelry, weaving and pottery.

During the city tour in Khiva, you will see all the sites, meet locals and taste Khiva's cuisine.
