    Silk Road Samarkand, unique tourist oasis not just of Uzbekistan but the entire Central Asia, will open for visitors this autumn, as the official sources say.

    This multifunctional tourist complex built on abandoned corn fields with ex-USSR national team rowing canal as its center is now getting its shape. The construction of 8 world-class hotels on the banks of the Rowing canal has already been fully completed, and the finishing works and commissioning of engineering communications are now underway. The canal itself is being currently cleared.

    The Eternal City and Congress Center are fully erected.

    The complex is now actively hiring staff.

    Active construction is underway on the territory of the Silk Road Samarkand. It is scheduled for opening in the Q1 2022. The complex includes various zones for business, entertainment and cultural purposes.

    One of the key projects is the Eternal City historical and ethnographic complex, which recreates the image of an ancient eastern city - a kind of Uzbekistan in miniature.

    Another zone is an eco-village. By spring 2022, the creators promise to plant a garden city, which will be the only arboretum in Uzbekistan. 180 hectares will be planted with greenery. Trees were brought from different countries.

    One of the features of Silk Road Samarkand is an artificial volcano with a pool.


  8. The total cost of the project is estimated at 353 million dollar. To date, work has been completed for 726.3 billion soums (67 million dollars). It is planned to put the facility into operation in the first quarter of 2022.

    The client is Samarkand Touristic Center, the designer is Turkish Arup, and the contractor is Singapore's Enter Engineering. Bakhtiyor Fazylov, entrepreneur and Chairman of the Board of the oilfield services company, Eriell Group (it was reported that he is also the main shareholder) and Enter Engineering (one of the largest EPC contractors in Uzbekistan, Gazprombank is among the shareholders) owns 60% of the company’s shares, the remaining 40% is owned by NBU Samarkand Invest.

    The owner of the trademarks Silk Road Touristic Centre, Marakanda Group Hotel, and Savitsky Plaza is Samarkand Touristic Centre.

  9. This looks like Ashgabat in Turkmenistan or Putrajaya in Malaysia.

    More like a government city than an entertainment zone.
