This is a place I have wanted to see for years, it did not disappoint. Visit a couple of times, at sunrise and sunset, stay for the light show but check its on. Probably the best kept monument in all of central asia

Visited during an international traditional singing event. The space is totally unique. Paid the ticket to get in for a full morning but each day afterwards enjoyed it from the viewing point at street level.

That's probably the first place one should see in Samarkand. Best to go with the guide who can explain you everything in more detail.

One of the most significant sights to see in Uzbekistan, but it has been over-renovated and santized to the point where it is impressive, but just not as interesting as lesser attractions. All of the vendors located inside the Registan structures is quite annoying, but...More

The Registan is absolutely mindblowing - you MUST see this place, it is so beautiful. We visited the Registan twice, the first time during the time and the second time at night. You certainly need more than 3 hours to visit all the sights and...More

We visited 3 times: once with our tour group when it was over-run with tourists, once in the evening to catch it with the lights on (but could not enter), and once early in the morning, as a walk from our hotel, before the crowds...More

The Registan is one of the highlights of all Central Asia. Just amazing to see from both outside and inside. I found really interesting the photos inside that showed how things were 100 years ago in ruins and how they look now.
