The Silk Route - Central Asia & lran
Central Asia has historically been an ethnic bridge between the Turkic and the Persian cultures. Persian Iran loaned its desert architecture of mud brick and glazed tiles, its Islamic beliefs and its decorative motifs to the Turkic-speaking peoples of this region. The Turkic Silk Road merchants shared their exotic wares with the Persians and both cultures were inestimably enriched. Today’s traveler is surrounded with the results of this melding of beautiful materials, visionary architecture and deeply hospitable people.
