There are a lot of images of buildings in Flickr’s Uzbekistan slide show — mainly pictures of mosques, and minarets, and arches and large, mosaic-adormed domes (80% of Uzbekistan’s people are Muslim). Tashkent, the capital, is a modernized city, and there are certainly people around — Uzbekistan is the most populous country in Central Asia — but the country’s rich history, personified by its ancient architecture, apparently is what truly catches the tourist’s imagination. Remember to look through the slideshow once before showing the kids, though there’s not much in this one that will bother them, unless they have a thing against “Timur the lame,” which they very well might.
