Railway in Uzbekistan
Uzbekistan railways offer a comfortable, reliable and cheap way to explore the touristic highlights of the country. Alltough shared-taxis and buses often provide a more frequent means of transportation, I recommend to travel by train. Several new express trains have been introduced since 2004. And now the high-speed era is just about to begin in Uzbekistan. Uzbek Railways bought two highspeed-trains from the Spanish company "Talgo". Their top speed is 250 km/h and they will soon begin to run between Tashkent and Samarkand. The main line Tashkent - Samarkand - Bukhara is served by express train named "Sharq": The train brings you from Tashkent in 3h30min to Samarkand and makes the 600-km-journey Tashkent - Bukhara (with intermediate stop in Samarkand) in about 6,5 hours. A daily overnight train from Tashkent to Bukhara offers the possibility to travel during the night and win one day. Comfortable sleeping cars allow a good sleep.
