Jarek Pokrzywnicki (Poland):
Visited in April, 2010. One of the former capital city of pre-Russian chanats (like Kchiva and Buchara). A little bit disappointing comparing to the other 2 as not many old building are preserved in the city center. Also during my stay the whole quarter of old buildings around khan's palace was demolished (intended fot new architecture ?). From practical point of view it was very difficult to find any accommodation there - all LP hotels were not in use - I found pretty nice new place just outside the center.
