Ferghana region is located in the southern part of the Ferghana valley, which for the fertility and picturesque nature is called the pearl of Central Asia.
Fergana valley is called the inter-mountain basin in the upper reaches of the Sirdarya river and its sources, surrounded by the mountain systems of Pamir-Alai and Tien Shan.

The scientists learned a lot about the culture and life of Ferghana local population from ancient Chinese sources (II century BC).
On its territory there are numerous monuments of the past, the ruins of ancient cities, fortresses, castles.

Fergana is a relatively young city founded in 1876.
There are no typical for most tourist cities of Uzbekistan historical monuments of architecture, and the main attractions are extremely beautiful landscapes.
Fergana can rightly be called the greenest city of the Republic, because all the streets are decorated with ancient trees planted during the founding of the city.

In the cities of Rishtan, Margilan and Kuva, located near Fergana, as well as in Kokand and Andijan, which are part of the Fergana valley, preserved a large number of monuments of ancient architecture.
For example, Margilan is called the city of silk manufactory, Kokand is the city of Khan’s palaces, and Rishtan is famous for its ceramics.
Andijan region – the smallest in area, but the most densely populated region in Uzbekistan.
It is located in the eastern part of the Fergana valley in the east of Uzbekistan.

Оne of the oldest cities of Uzbekistan, Andijan founded in the VI—IV century BC, archaeologists have recently established that the territory of the modern city is inhabited for more than 2500 years.
Ancient Andijan was located at the intersection of the Great silk road trade roads.

In the 6th century BC in the region there was an ancient state of Davan with its capital in the city of Ershi (a suburb of Andijan), there was developed agriculture with artificial irrigation, cattle breeding, including the cultivation of “white horses”, which served as the beginning of a conflict between the state of Davan and the Great Empire of China.

Andijan is the birthplace of Zahiriddin Muhammad Babur, the founder of the Mughal Empire, the last descendant of the Timurids.
Later Babur’s grandson Shah Jahan ruled to build the famous Taj Mahal in Agra (India).

Despite the fact that there are not so many preserved architectural and historical monuments, there are almost 380 sites of cultural heritage in Andijan.
On the territory of the region there are ancient settlements (for example: Ershi settlement in Adijan surburb) and archaeological complexes which dates from the XII-VII centuries BC.

Andijan today is the largest industrial, scientific-research, educational, tourist-cultural and transport center of the Fergana valley.
