Historical Silk Road - inspiration of the expedition project

Ancient Silk Road is a shared cultural heritage. Restored Silk Road refers to "the great economic project" which was the legendary system of caravan trade routes, used between III b.c. and half of the XVII century of our era. It combined China with Constantinople and Europe and on its entire length, over 7000 km, it promoted cultural, economic and political exchange, becoming a kind of prelude to the modern system of global economy, shaping development of civilization.

"Thanks to the old Silk Road – says the creator and organizer of the New Silk Road 2017 expedition – great civilizations traded technological achievements and knowledge, met and mixed cultural influences. I believe that cultural heritage can be a foundation to building a broad cooperation. In today's global context, the ancient route may become a symbol of a high political, commercial and cultural potential of the entire region."
