Uzbekistan Restoring A Cultural And Historical Complex

Thursday, May 25, 2017 - 22:35

In Uzbekistan, plans are afoot to implement a unique project for reconstruction and restoration of buildings that are part of the historical complex “Nurillaboi” located in the city of Khiva. The resolution on the main parameters of this project was recently approved by the government of the republic. According to experts, its primary purpose is the further development of the tourist, historical and architectural potential of Khiva. In addition, these works will allow to familiarize the broad public with the rich historical heritage and unique examples of culture and art of the Uzbek people, and to preserve Uzbekistan's national culture and traditions.


All the works planned within the project should be completed by the end of 2017. They will be financed at the expense of funds allocated by the National Bank for Foreign Economic Activity of Uzbekistan, which will later rent all these facilities at zero rate. In addition, the bank also undertook to organize a reception center, a gallery, an amphitheater, a restaurant of national cuisine and craft workshops within the complex.


Once the restoration and reconstruction are completed, further operation of the complex and financing of its maintenance will be carried out at the expense of own funds of the National Bank of Uzbekistan, revenues derived from the current activities of the “Nurillaboi” complex, and other sources not prohibited by national legislation.


The “Nurillaboi” complex was established between 1893 and 1904, on behalf of Khiva Muhammad Rahim Khan II for his son, Prince Isfandiyar Khan. The latter added a palace intended for the reception of foreign guests to the complex after the death of his father.
