The Office of the State Committee for Tourism in Khorezm region in cooperation with the Ichan-Kala Museum Reserve has developed a special program application ‘Khiva Audio Tour.’
According to the press office of the State Committee for Tourism, the audio guide is freely available in the Play Market and the App Store. The application is installed on a smartphone or tablet.
The developer of the software of this application is the young programmer Rasulbek Abdurasulov.
The uniqueness of the Khiva Audio Tour program is that it is connected to a GPS system. Therefore, the application itself determines your location and begins to tell about the nearest historical site. As soon as you go to the next landmark, the program will switch to this object. This application, in addition to audio information, has photo-text content.
The application provides information about the historical places of Khiva, which is very convenient for individual tourists, who, in most cases, prefer to walk around the town unaccompanied and at a convenient time.
The application is developed in English and Russian. Currently, work is under way to create versions in French and German. This application can also be purchased free of charge in the Information Center located inside the Ichan Kala Museum. Also in Information Center has a service ‘rent of tablets’ with ‘Khiva Audio Tour.’
