The first geopark in Central Asia will be created in Uzbekistan

In August was held First International Geotourism Forum with participation of scientists and sector experts from 15 countries dedicated to prospects for the development of new tourist destinations in Uzbekistan. Rich in sights, Shakhrisabz with a 2500-year history was chosen as the venue for the forum due to its proximity to the Kitab State Geological Reserve - the proposed location for the creation of the first Central Asian geopark.
