Uzbekistan: Samarkand – Registan at Night
The Registan Square is all lit up at night making for a must see experience! All three madrasahs are beautifully illuminated and the light reflects off the blue tiles. We also managed to climb to the top of one of the minarets on the Ulugh Beg Madrasah (the minaret is actually leaning like the Tower in Pisa). The staircase spirals up all the way to the top where you can pop out and see the Registan and the city from above – a bit of an unnerving experience given how flimsy the minaret and brickwork looks.
