CultureGrams: Uzbekistan Kids Country Report













The new Uzbekistan report includes detailed information on the history, culture, language, food, and daily life of this country.

Here are some fascinating Did You Knows about Uzbekistan:

  • One of the world’s largest gold mines is located in Uzbekistan’s Kyzyl Kum Desert.
  • In Uzbekistan, every man must serve in the army for at least one year. Before he leaves home, it’s a tradition to have him bite a piece of round Uzbek bread and hang it on the wall until he comes back.
  • Samarqand and Bukhara are more than two thousand years old and are some of the oldest cities in the world.
  • Out of respect, male community leaders are often called aksakal, meaning “white beard.”
