The projected site is located in Khiva – the city of the Khorezm region of Uzbekistan. The historic inner city of Khiva, the pearl of the Khorezm oasis, has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Most of Khiva’s architectural masterpieces are concentrated in its urban core, Ichan-Kala. It is a “city in a city”, surrounded by powerful walls, in which four gates are on each side of the world. From the western gate to the east lay one of the main thoroughfares, along which the main monumental buildings are concentrated.
