Termez is located in the far south of the country, close to an ancient crossing over the Amu Darya river leading into Afghanistan. The location of the city has changed throughout history due to a succession of invaders. The first settlement was established in the third century BC. Ghengis Khan then destroyed the city in 1220, leaving the inhabitants to rebuild in its current location on the left bank of the Amu Darya river. Much of the modern city dates from the early 19th century and, during the Soviet era, was effectively closed to the outside world.
