Central Asia consists of seven countries, all of which are landlocked. Five are of these are Soviet Union republics, including Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan and Tajikstan, whilst Afghanistan and Mongolia have kept their independence although both have been under Communist rule for a short period in history.
Majestic cities with beautiful palaces, mosques, minarets and medressas were erected over thousands of years. Many of them were ruined, but several withstood the conquerors and passing of time, and today stand as monuments, reflecting their former glory. The artistic delights found in Central Asia are comparable with the architectural masterpieces of Egypt, India, China and ancient Greece and Rome.
