This is a one-day tour, perfect for filling up an extra day with a visit to the Savitsky Museum. Nukus is surrounded by three deserts (Karakum, Kyzylkum, and the Ustyurt Plateau), yet this small museum has one of the world’s leading collections of Soviet avant-garde art, plus an excellent ethnographic collection detailing the artistry and creativity of the people of Central Asia. This is due in large part to the work of the museum’s founder, Igor Savitsky, who arrived in Karakalpakstan as part of an archaeological expedition, and stayed to found the museum and fill its halls with exhibits and paintings. Take a short trip outside of Nukus to the Mizdakhan Necropolis and the fortress of Gyaur-Kala, both famous landmarks of a more historical character.
