Meetings at the Departments

We can’t but notice remarkable hospitality and generosity of our colleagues from Uzbekistan, who organized not only our representatives’ staying in Samarkand, but also an acquaintance with this ancient city. It should be noted that there are few places in the world that have such a glorious history. Samarkand was a key station on the Great Silk Road from China to Europe for more than two thousand years. Besides, it was one of the main scientific centers of medieval East.  Moreover, Samarkand was the capital of the Tamerlane Empire in the XIV century. Tamerlane’s mausoleum can be visited nowadays.
