Ancient City of Otrar

One of the most ancient cities in Central Asia

Otrar, also known as Farab, was a significant cultural and trade center. In addition, it was of great diplomatic and military strategic importance. In the past century, the first studies and excavations were carried out, discovering an ancient palace, mosques, and baths. Antique ceramics, metal tools, coins, and jewelry were also found. Now these artifacts can be seen in museums across the country.

The city has a history dating back 2 thousand years. Visitors will be able to learn it thoroughly. The government with the assistance of UNESCO is working on the preservation of historical monuments.
