Cultural data contained in the article introduces European audience to the location of the country, population, its multinational composition, values, customs and traditions of the Uzbek people. It is noted that for many centuries the ancient cities of Samarkand, Bukhara, Khiva, Tashkent and others were the centers of development and spirituality, culture and science. Uzbek land gave the world great scientists, philosophers, poets, whose invaluable contribution to the development of human civilization does not fade for centuries.
