Programme for the further development tourism in Bukhara province is approved. 

It is envisaged to spend nearly 7 million US dollars on measures to ensure tourists’ security, to develop such types of tourism as religious tourism, ecotourism, medical tourism, business tourism, agritourism, cultural tourism, industrial tourism, culinary tourism and sports tourism, to expand cooperation with the UNWTO and prestigious international and national tourism organizations, to rapidly develop tourism industry facilities, to build road-transport and engineering-communication infrastructure and renovate such existing infrastructure.

It is today’s requirement to make competitive tourism products and services and to work out a strategy for promoting them on internal and external markets.

Bukhara is called an ancient and eternal city for a good reason. There are ancient shrines and artefacts here, and Uzbeks’ unique values and incomparable traditions have been observed here for centuries. Foreigners’ interest and that of historians in these have always been high. This should be put to good use.

Small ring road going round Bukhara’s ancient shrines will be build.


The President of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoev had proclaimed tourism as one of priorities to develop and expand in his stragegy of socio-economic development of Uzbekistan for 2017-2021.


One of the pins: Bukhara history museum  is to be built in an area of 1.2 hectares at the cost of nearly 25 million US dollars to be allocated by the state for this construction project. Once the museum is built and put into use, rare exhibits being kept in the Ark fortress will be moved there. More than 60 jobs will be created.

There are 660 cultural heritage sites in Bukhara. Most of them are examples of ancient architecture, monumental works of art and archaeological sites.

Recently, tourism has been given major priority since Mr. Shavkat Mirziyoev was elected as president of Uzbekistan on December 4th 2016.
