A city worth called a world wonder. Samarkand left us speechless - part 1
We are in a city called Samarkand. Never heard of it? Me neither before and I know seriously wonder why. This looks so amazing it should be worth being on some world wonder list and at least to be slightly known. Buuuut im rushing ahead again. Before going to Samarkand we visited a traditional silk factory, our guide Siki told us the entire process and I'll now do the same with you 😋
These weaving machines are used to make "endless" materials for sewing or scarfes.
They also have "real" machines for these endless bands
Some detailed carpets. The sky is made out of silk, the rest out of cotton.
There is plenty of street food and here is an especially good looking nom (bread):
We were VERY amazed by this and not prepared what was to come.
The next thing is called "Registan" and was used for different things during it's existence. It was used as a center of education for astronomy, physics, arabic language, Islam, maths and other things and it is just stunning. It is an ensemble of three big buildings with their own "backyard". I'll post some pictures here but be sure to check out the picture section, this is just insane.
Ok this website is buggy and deleted a bubch of text and atleast 60 pictures for the second time, I'll create a second entry with the rest of the content.
