Karakul is what Bukhara is famous for

Karakul is what Bukhara is famous for

Central Asia is called the cradle of modern civilization. Many crafts, needlework, art, creativity and science became famous to the whole world through Central Asia.

 When a tourist arrives in a new city or country, he looks for something special, unique, exclusive, which this city/country is famous for, what he can see and what he can buy, something extraordinary. A modern hostel offers tourists very comfortable accomodation.

Bukhara is the birthplace of karakul fur. Here, in Uzbekistan, for the first time, they began to breed the Karakul sheep, conduct breeding works on breeding karakul sheeps with various characteristics of skins and a unique appearance. Entire textbooks, scientific papers, and even literary works have been written on the history of the Uzbek karakul. The khanates of Central Asia for many centuries were monopolists in the world market for the supply of karakul. Breeding sheep were sold in gold!

The country's climate contributes to obtaining the best fur raw materials, which are highly valued on the international market and are worthy of competition to swakara (South African karakul).
