The journey to Khiva, the world's heritage in Great Silk Road
Khiva's age totals 2500 years. During its history, the city survived the Achaemenid, Arab, Mongolian conquests and periods of prosperity, when the borders of ancient Khorezm reached the Colchis. Not just Khorezm and Amir Timur were given. Only during the fifth campaign Khorezm yielded to him.
The legend of Khiva says that the city originated around the well "Kheiwak", which was famous for its amazing water. The well was dug by the order of Noah’s eldest son (biblical character). This well is still preserved in the territory of the fortress of Ichan-Kala. Here everything seems not quite familiar - a kitchen, people, speech, even architecture. Almost everything is preserved in its original form. The streets are paved with stone. Like chess pieces, minarets, domes of madrassas and mosques can be seen from everywhere. Even modern buildings are decorated for antiquity.
Khiva is like a huge open-air museum, and its heart is the fortress of Ichan-Kala. The most of the sights are located exactly here. The walls of Ichan-Kala were built in the 5th-6th century.
