Khiva: People, Culture And History

Last time we began to walk along Khiva, why not continue the tour today?

People, mosaic and wood carving are inside the post.

The walls of Itchan Kala had been reliably protecting the city for a thousand of years, but in 1220 were demolished by the Mongols. In the gentle slopes they started to bury the dead locals. In 1790 the city wall was restored, it was 2100 m long and 7-8 m high. At the ground level it was 6 m thick.

    These are really nice, I want to go there now! I have a soft spot for the girl in the first picture, making doll clothes. My grandmother was a serious Barbie-doll collector and made clothes for them. All us kids were very popular when the neighbor girls would have birthdays, because we gave them fancy doll dresses that were nicer than the stuff you could buy. Such good memories…
