Aspara Fashion Week: AW-21/22
Great silk road! Dialogue of cultures. The silk road as a trade route appeared in the III century BC and lasted until the XVI century of our century. Many devastating wars, destruction, fires, famine, and pestilence have seen the ancient trading cities located along the silk road. Some of them have sunk into eternity, leaving descendants only nameless ruins, others more than once burned in the fire and died, but were reborn again to amaze the world with wealth, blue domes, and openwork terracotta ligature of mausoleums and mosques.
The main route Of the great silk road on the territory of Kazakhstan ran through the South of the country. From the border of China, trade caravans moved through the cities of Merke, Taraz, Sairam, Yasi, Otrar further to Central Asia, Persia, the Caucasus, and Europe. All these cities owe their appearance to merchants who, overcoming the vast Kazakh steppes, arranged stops that turned into caravanserais, and those, in turn, into settlements that eventually grew into cities.
Along with goods, crafts, architecture, culture, art, and religions spread along the silk road.
Thus, the great silk road was a symbol of relations between the West and the East.
