Lubosh Fellner, director of the Slovak travel company Bubo Travel Agency, said that the company he represents is the largest tour operator in Slovakia offering tours to the historic cities of Uzbekistan.
- In recent years, Slovakia has seen an increase in interest in the Central Asian region and the Bubo Travel Agency has been carrying out an active advertising campaign aimed at attracting more Slovak tourists to the legendary cities of Samarkand, Bukhara, Khiva and Tashkent. We are sure that this is a very promising direction, especially since the republic is ready to welcome foreign tourists cordially, and is doing everything to make their trip unforgettable.
Martin Novratil, representative of ITF SLOVAKIATOUR, said that he has been organizing and accompanying Slovak tourist groups to Uzbekistan for several years.
“I am in love with Uzbekistan, which is truly a “pearl of the East” and has a huge number of unique historical and architectural monuments of world importance. The admiration of Slovak tourists causes a harmonious combination of ancient and modern architecture, classical and modern art in the republic, developed infrastructure and warm hospitality of the Uzbek people”, he said.
