What is the Silk Road?

The Silk Road is an extensive network of ancient trade routes connecting East and West, fostering commerce, cultural exchange, and significant historical interactions between diverse civilizations. Emerging around 130 BCE, during the Han Dynasty, the silk road remained a significant trade route until the 1450s.

Originating from China, this transcontinental route spanned over 4,000 miles, traversing through Central Asia, the Middle East, and reaching as far as the Mediterranean. It facilitated the exchange of goods, technologies, ideas, and beliefs between the East and the West, contributing profoundly to the development of civilizations. Named after the lucrative silk trade, it also transported spices, precious metals, textiles, and cultural philosophies, leaving an indelible mark on global history and shaping the modern world.
