Khorezm, Shosh, Sogds, Ustrushan, Marghinon are considered to be historical places of Uzbekistan. Most of Uzbeks are Muslims, their attitude towards different religions such as Buddhism, Christianity and Judaism is built on respect. Hospitality is one of the best traditions of Uzbek people. Everyone, regardless his nationality, is always treated in a very respected way and being a 'guest' in this country means a lot of privileges and great attitude. Besides, Uzbeks are a curious nation who likes meeting people and they are fond of communicating with the representatives of other cultures. Another common pastime of Uzbeks is that they like to spend their leisure time in teahouses and bazaars. The social life here in cities resemble to that of European countries. The Bazaar is a place of interaction apart from its primary sense of buying and selling. And here you will see Uzbeks from all walks of life either trying to make a deal or just kicking it. If you visit Uzbekistan you should surely go to a bazaar. Its noisiness, variety, bright colors, hustle and bustle will leave unforgettable memories for good.

ABOUT UZBEKISTAN Culture and Traditions Culture of Uzbekistan is one of the brightest and original cultures of East. It is inimitable national music, dances and painting, unique national kitchen and clothes. The Uzbek national music is characterized as variety of subjects and genres. The songs and tool plays according to their functions and forms of usage can be divided into two groups: performed in the certain time and under the certain circumstances and performed at any time. The songs connected with customs and traditions, labor processes, various ceremonies, dramatized entertainment representations and games belong to the first group.
The Uzbek people is well-known for its songs. Koshuk - household song with a small diapason melody, covering one or two rows of the poetic text. The dancing character of a melody of this genre provides their performance in support of comic dances. "Lapar" is a dialogue-song. In some areas the term - lapar is applied to wedding songs "Ulan" (which is performed as a dialogue of man and women). Genre "yalla" includes two kinds of songs: a melody of a narrow range, and solo simultaneously with dance. National and professional poems of the poets of East are used as the texts for the songs. The special place in the Uzbek musical heritage occupy "dastans" (epic legends with lyric-heroic content). Also "Makoms"- are the basic classical fund of professional music of oral tradition.

On March 31, 2004, the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, a terrorist group associated with the al-Qaeda network, launched a series of suicide bombings and engaged in gun battles with Uzbek security forces, in which 44 people were killed. As economic and political conditions continue to deteriorate additional violence can be expected.
Background During the Russian Revolution (1917-18), many Central Asians, opposed to the Czar, supported the Bolsheviks, while others resisted any form of Russian influence in the region. In 1917, Russian forces wrested control of Tashkent and established the Turkestan Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic, although rebel resistance remained active. Stalin introduced aggressive irrigation schemes to increase cotton production which ultimately wrought environmental havoc, drying up rivers and the Aral Sea and depleting the land. To protect its industry during World War II, Russia moved factories to Central Asia, along with a new wave of Russian workers and subversives exiled from the Crimea, Chechnya and elsewhere. This industrial boom brought little benefit to native Uzbeks.

In 1995 about 71% of Uzbekistan's population was Uzbek. The chief minority groups were Russians Tajiks (officially 5%, but believed to be much higher), Kazaks Tatars (2.5%), and Karakalpaks (2%)and other minority groups include Armenians and Koryo-saram . It is said however that the number of non-indigenous people living in Uzbekistan is decreasing as Russians and other minority groups slowly leave and Uzbeks return from other parts of the former Soviet Union . Uzbeks and Tajiks are descendants of the Indian and European nomads roaming and settled in the steppes of Central Asia.

People lived on the crossroads of the ancient Silk Road and their lives highly depended on the business they conducted with foreigners that traveled from east to west and back, carrying silk, pottery and other goods. Anyone, irregardless of his or her nationality, is always treated as if he was sent by God. Besides, Uzbeks are a curious nation who like meeting people and they are always happy to guests of different nationalities. Chaikhana Uzbekistan is well known for its chaikhanas (teahouses), where men get together and spend time chatting and joking over a cup of tea. It is part of the culture that women take care of the house, including cooking. Uzbek men have good cooking skills and chaikhana is the place where they get together and cook pilaw (rice with meat and vegetables) or kazan kabob (fried meat with potatoes). Bazaar The Bazaar is a place of interaction apart from its primary purpose of buying and selling. The best part of the bazaar is the bargaining. People just love to bargain.

Identification. Uzbeks likely take their name from a khan. A leader of the Golden Horde in the fourteenth century was named Uzbek, though he did not rule over the people who would share his name. Today the government is strengthening the Uzbek group identity, to prevent the splintering seen in other multiethnic states. Some people have assimilated with seemingly little concern. Many Tajiks consider themselves Uzbek, though they retain the Tajik language; this may be because they have long shared an urban lifestyle, which was more of a bond than ethnic labels. Others have been more resistant to Uzbekization. Many Qipchaqs eschew intermarriage, live a nomadic lifestyle, and identify more closely with the Kyrgyz who live across the border from them. The Khojas also avoid intermarriage, and despite speaking several languages, have retained a sense of unity. The Karakalpaks, who live in the desert south of the Aral Sea, have a separate language and tradition more akin to Kazakh than Uzbek. Under the Soviet Union, theirs was a separate republic, and it remains autonomous.

Some of the world's most audacious and beautiful examples of Islamic religious buildings are to be found in Uzbekistan's Bukhara, Khiva and, especially, Samarkand. Most of the monumental mosques, minarets, mausolea and monasteries date from the time of the Timurids, great appreciators of glitzy, glazed goth-ish glories. Uzbekistan's folk art has tended towards the portable - clothes, arms, jewellery, weaving, embroidery and rugs - in tune with semi-nomadic living. Islam prohibits the depiction of the living, so traditional arts developed in the form of calligraphy, combining Islamic script with arabesques, and the carving of doors and screens.
u z b e k i s t a n Painting was revived under the Soviets and became a curious hybrid of socialist realism and mock traditionalism - try smiling Ukbeks at a teahouse with futuristic chimneys thrusting skywards in the background.
Uzbek men usually wear sombre colours, except for the bright-coloured sash which older men use to close their long quilted coats. Nearly all wear the

Culture shock a main feature in jarring tales
By Jennifer Modenessi
So what drew the Escanaba, Mich., native to a remote Soviet Central Asian republic?
After graduating from Michigan State University in 1996 with a degree in English, Bissell applied to the Peace Corps, hoping for a stint in Eastern Europe. What he got was an assignment to Uzbekistan.
All did not go well. Ill, homesick and heartsick for the fiancee he left behind, Bissell cut his service short and decided to return to the United States. On the plane back home, he began to write.
Believable characters
Whether writing about a hapless American couple on a self-indulgent thrill-seeking trip or an environmental biologist stranded on the barren floor of a dead sea, Bissell creates characters that are compelling and touchingly flawed. In a few instances, they even come off as vaguely unlikable, but Bissell makes no apologies for his renderings.
Current projects With that insight, his daring writing and direct style, how could Bissell not tackle such a difficult and timely topic?
