Everyone knows about the tragedy of the Aral Sea. Once it was the fourth largest lake in the world. Today the Aral has left a "sea" of salt and sand.
History of Uzbekistan has more than one millennium. The territory between the Amudarya and Syrdarya rivers was inhabited by ancient people in the early Paleolithic. The years passed, centuries, cities grew and civilizations developed, which by right today are considered the most ancient in the East. From time immemorial, heroes and scientists, thinkers and poets appeared - people who created the history of our region and glorified it all over the world.

Clothing has always been considered an important element of the image of man. It is not for nothing that it is considered that the first impression of a man is created on clothes.

But what they wore - this is a story - fantastic, exciting, fascinating.

In spite of all, Aral is still alive. And this lonely sea deserves visiting and touching its water surface.
