Bukhara, Uzbekistan

Bukhara is the current capital of the Bukhara Province of Uzbekistan, acting as a beacon of cultural prominence with its history reaching as far back as 6 BCE.  Located on the Silk Road, the city has been exposed to thousands of years of cultural diffusion, with the results being shown in its magnificent design and beauty.  Bukhara acts as a city museum, its architectural structures serve as works of art in their own right, with over 140 architectural monuments to appreciate within the city.  Home to many mosques and madrassas, the center of Bukhara has been named by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site due to its architectural and historical significance.

Santa Fe and Bukhara signed a Sister Cities agreement that highlights the many rich traditions and customs native to their regions, along with an intrinsic beauty that lies in their historic preservation and architecture.   The cities continue to explore cultural opportunities between their communities.
