The international congress ‘Cultural Legacy of Uzbekistan as the Path to the Dialogue between the Peoples and Countries’, which will be held on May 15 in Tashkent, will bring together 200 scientists and experts from 20 countries.

This forum will involve experts from UNESCO, UNICEF, the Konrad Adenauer Foundation (Germany) and other international organizations, representatives of diplomatic missions, state and public organizations of Uzbekistan, academies, universities, libraries and museums of France, Poland, Russia, the United States, the United Kingdom and many other countries.

The themes list includes the role of the cultural legacy of Uzbekistan in world history, its ethno-cultural interrelations, the artifacts of the country’s art and religious beliefs, and the synthesis of the traditions of the West and the East, and much more.

“This congress is an important step in the implementation of the cultural and educational project ‘Cultural Legacy of Uzbekistan in the Collections of the World,” Irina Popova, Director of the Institute of Oriental Manuscripts of the Russian Academy of Sciences, emphasized. “The Uzbek land has an ancient original history and a unique cultural tradition, which is evidenced by works of art, manuscripts and books that have spread over various world assemblies. The organizers of the project set a noble goal – to collect them in a single media space and to present it as evidence of world significance, wealth, beauty and uniqueness of the culture of the people of Uzbekistan.”

Professor Shain Mustafayev, corresponding member of the National Academy of Sciences of Azerbaijan, noted that Central Asia is one of the oldest centers of human civilization, and the territory of modern Uzbekistan keeps the memory and cultural treasures of the millennia, which are invaluable property of all mankind.

“The highly developed Sapalin archeological culture of the Bronze Age tribes, exquisite examples of material culture of the ancient epoch in the territory of Bactria, Sogd, Choch, Khorezm, high spiritual culture and architectural masterpieces of the Temurid Renaissance epoch – all this cultural wealth the Uzbek people inherited from their thousand-year history and continues to cherish. Many samples of this culture for many different reasons found themselves in many leading museums around the world. This project symbolizes the continuity of the historical memory of the people and allows not only to preserve and pass on the knowledge on their deep cultural roots to future generations, but also to make them the property of connoisseurs of art around the world,” Shain Mustafayev said.
