The Spirit of Samarkand

The ancient city is getting ready to celebrate its 2750th anniversary.

At the 33rd session of the UNESCO General Assembly, which was held on October 20, 2005, a resolution to celebrate Samarkand's 2750th anniversary was adopted. This resolution signaled not only another confirmation of the universal tribute of humanity to one of the centers of civilization, but also a confirmation of the stable role that the ancient city continues to play the life of Uzbekistan, the region, and the world.

Afrasiab, Shakhi-Zinda, Gur Emir and other architectural monuments have been recognized by the UNESCO as "world heritage sites." Many of them are being restored and are regaining their original beauty within the framework of the celebration. Samarkand, the eternal symbol of Uzbekistan, and a number of other cities such as Khiva, Bukhara, Karshi, Shakhrisabz, help the nation to confidently look into the future.

The city has served as a venue for important intergovernmental meetings. In particular, in early August of 2005 a summit meeting between the Presidents of Uzbekistan and Russia took place. As political scientists have defined it, a "spirit of Samarkand" has formed in the Uzbek-Russian relations and this is characterized by sincerity, mutual trust, and purposefulness for a long-term perspective of cooperation.

Samarkand has been famed as a center of science and art since early times. The pictures on the walls of ancient Afrasiab that have been preserved to this day, feature images of musicians and singers. The works dedicated to the theory and history of music which were created by outstanding Uzbek people such as Abu Yusuf Yakub inb Iskhak and Abu Nasr Farobi made a great contribution to the development of national and world music culture.

To expand the popularity scope of the Uzbek people's ancient culture and unique art, in the mid 90s President Islam Karimov came up with a proposal to organize in Samarkand a festival of the music and art of the peoples of the east. This proposal was approved by the UNSECO. In 1997 Samarkand hosted the first International Music Festival "Sharq taronalari". Its success surpassed all expectations. The festival has become traditional and is held every two years.

The first festival featured participants from 29 countries while in 2005, 45 countries sent their masters of art and experts on music. 2007 is expected to see the sixth festival "Sharq taronalari."

History is what spirituality is based on. And these words bear the lofty essence of the originality and mentality of the Uzbek nation. Samarkand is a fabled and legendary city. In 329 B.C. Alexander the Great said. "All I have heard about Marakanda is true except that it is a lot more beautiful than I imagined."
