Turkish guests visit Khiva

President Shavkat Mirziyoyev and President Recep Tayyip Erdogan visited the Ichan-Kala complex in Khiva.

Both leaders have a great interest in and respect for history. During his visit to Turkey, the President of Uzbekistan visited the Topkapi Palace in Istanbul. Earlier, Recep Tayyip Erdogan visited Bukhara.

Ichan-Kala is the only city monument preserved in Central Asia. That is why it is recognized as an open-air museum. There are more than 120 architectural monuments here.

Khiva was included in the UNESCO World Heritage List on December 12, 1990. In 1997, the city celebrated its 2500th anniversary.

During this long history, Khiva was the center of many Turkic states. In 2020, the TURKSOY International Organization declared Khiva the cultural capital of the Turkic world.

In this context, the visit of the Presidents of Uzbekistan and Turkey to the ancient city is of particular importance.

The guests toured the Western Gate, the Kalta Minor minaret, the old Kunya-Ark citadel and madrasah, craft workshops, the mausoleum of Pahlavan-Mahmud and the Friday Mosque.

The heads of state had sincere conversations with artisans and tourists. Khorezm songs and dances created a festive atmosphere.

The history and role of Khiva in the development of statehood and science, the ancient monuments and the art of the city made a great impression on the Turkish guests.
