Train between Urgench Bukhara

There seem to be a little bit of confusion about the existence of a train between Urgench and Bukhara.

I have read that the propposed new train is still not operative, and that nowadays connecting both cities imply longer routes than going by car.

However in some other places it says that there is now a train https:/…

Can anybody clarify this?

Also, in case this train exists, does it go through Turkmentistan in case we need special visas or does it go through uzebekistan soil

Thanks

1. Re: Train between Urgench Bukhara

We can go to official uzbekistan railway site and select Bukhara timetable (…uzrailway.uz/timetable/…today) . Look for train no. 354 (ТЕРМЕЗ- КУНГРАД-ТЕРМЕЗ) this is the only train currently that links Urgench and Bukhara but as we can see from the timetable they only run on certain dates 18-19 June, 2-3 July, 16-17 July. They are not fully operational yet. Maybe later this year hopefully.

Thank you for the information. I've checked the webpage and there seem to be more lines that link Urgench and Bukhara. I'm actualily looking for something in the direction Urgench-Bukhara.

This train seems to be daily. Is there any problem with it?

I'm trying to avoid plane, since we are already having the long plane from europe to Tashkent and then a flight to Urgench two days before :(
