Samarkand - City of 1001 nights

Saturday 2005-09-17

From the station we took a "marshutka" to downtown. The first hostel, where we wanted to go, was full, the second also, but they offered us a small hotel (belongig to the same company as the hostel) for the hostel-price (about 6 EUIR per night with breakfast).

Hotel Bonu-Sh:



We started our sightseeing trip at the Bibi-Khanum mosque, which is located next to hotel:
