The ancient city of Otrar

One of the most ancient cities on the territory of Central Asia

Otrar, also known earlier as Farab, is one of the most ancient cities on the territory of Central Asia, which was a peculiar center of trade, handicraft, art, and in addition had important diplomatic and military strategic importance.In the past century, the first studies and excavations were carried out: then the city was presented to the gaze of archaeologists by an ancient palace, mosques and baths. Here were collected a variety of ceramic products, metal products, ancient coins and decorations, which can now be seen in museums across the country.

Otrar, which existed for about two millennia, is designated a historical site today, on the territory of which joint activities are carried out with the establishment of UNESCO on the preservation of monuments. This place beautifully conveys the cultural spirit of past times and introduces each “guest of the city” with its unique history.
