For centuries, the Silk Route has connected a variety of societies across Asia, Europe, and Africa. This network not only brought people together through commerce but also facilitated the exchange of ideas, technology, knowledge, and cultural practices, bridging distant corners of the globe. Fortunately, many remnants of this cultural interchange have been safeguarded for present and future generations.

In a modern-day initiative, the UNESCO Almaty Regional Office encourages individuals to embark on a virtual odyssey through the cultural riches of Central Asia along the Silk Route, accessible on Google Arts & Culture. They are eager to present a novel “Pocket Gallery” encounter, enabling participants to delve deeply into the treasures amalgamated from national museums across the region.

Delve into the folklore of nomadic tribes portrayed through an array of pottery pieces and sculptures depicting animals and human figures. These relics showcase the diverse civilizations that intertwined through this legendary trade route.

From terracotta sculptures to metal figurines, vibrant blue ceramics, and intricately woven rugs, uncover the highlights from various regions of Central Asia such as Iran, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan — or opt to explore the entire compilation of detailed three-dimensional objects.
