Place Registan, which has existed for more than 6 centuries. Some of the buildings that are in the square have been kept here in their original form from the time they were built. Special attention deserves a complex of three medersas - schools built in the Middle Ages, lined with mosaics in the traditional national style. The square itself was paved with baked bricks at the end of the 19th century.
