Modern day Uzbekistan has a long history of civilization, and served as an important link in cultural and economic exchange between Persia in the West and Inner and East Asia for over two thousand years. Historically, the region of modern day Uzbekistan was inhabited by Persian speakers, or Tajiks, and Turkic speakers living alongside one another. Many of Central Asia's historically important cultural and economic centers are found in today's Uzbekistan, including Samarkand, Tashkent, and Bukhara.
