The Ark Fortress in Bukhara, Uzbekistan

🔸The Ark Fortress is impressive Bukhara citadel (6th c. - 7th c.). It is the location the city grew from. It is hard to imagine that just 100 years ago they still beheaded criminals on the square before the citadel and its dungeons were full of inmates suffering from poisonous insects.

🔸Until 1920 it had served as Bukhara rulers’ residence.
The fortress stands on an artificial hill of up to 20 meters in height. The approximate area of the site is 4.2 hectares.

🔸Today’s Ark is a most interesting tourist attraction featuring reconstructions with dummies and housing a few museums.
