Where did the Silk Way pass? See the map!

The Silk Way was an ancient commercial route from China to the Middle East and then to Europe by sea. The total length of the Silk Way exceeds 4000 miles.

It began in the famous Chinese city of Xian and went west on the southern edge of Gobi desert. Then it split into two main branches surrounding the Taklamakan desert.

The Silk Way caravans went on to the cities of Ferghana, Samarkand, Bukhara, Tehran, Baghdad and Damascus, before they met the sea, where the goods were loaded onto ships and delivered to the European customers.

Here is the full map of the Silk Way:
