Spanning 26 hectares (64 acres), this well-preserved urban core features over 250 old houses and more than 50 tourist attractions within its 2 km (1.2 mi) long brick wall. Some 300 families still live inside the walls, specializing in traditional crafts. Take a stroll along the old alleys, do some museum-hopping, and admire an ornate tiled minaret and characteristic entrance towers over a pointed arch. Climb to a vantage point for a panoramic view of Khiva. To visit Itchan Kala on your holiday in Khiva, and find out what else Khiva has to offer, use our Khiva trip website .
Itchan Kala Reviews
世界遺産の街ヒヴァは、屋外博物館のようになっていて、ひと言でイチャン・カラと括るのは難しいですがシルク・ロードが栄えていた時代そのもののような空間が広がっています。西門前でチケットを購入すると2日間、何度でも1部を除いて遺跡やモスク、マドラサが見えるので、朝から晩まで楽しめました。私はウズベキスタンの中では、ヒヴァが1番、次がブハラが好きなので、おすすめします。 more »The World Heritage City Khiva is like an outdoor museum, and it is difficult to enclose with Ichan Kara in a word, but the space is like the time when Silk Road flourished. When I purchased a ticket in front of the West Gate, I could enjoy the ruins, the mosque, and the madrasa for two days, except for one part, from morning till night. In my Uzbekistan, Khiva is the number one, and I like Bukhara, so I recommend it.
Piccola, a misura d'uomo e totalmente visitabile a piedi. Khiva è un gioiellino ricostruito perfettamente. E' il primo sito uzbeko ad essere stato inserito nella lista dei Patrimoni dell'Umanità dall'... more »Small, human-sized and fully accessible on foot. Khiva is a perfectly reconstructed jewel. It is the first Uzbek site to be included in UNESCO's list of World Heritage Sites. There will be a why.... Really delicious! The entrance to the citadel is scenic with the imposing walls surrounding it with a sinuous trend. Once inside the citadel is a succession of monuments, palaces, mosques and magnificent madrassas made of raw clay brick and decorated with glazed tiles in shades of blue and green. An unmissable stop during a trip to Uzbekistan.
