Nukus

3.8
Serving as a popular base to explore the ruins and nature around the Aral Sea, Nukus also boasts its fair share of attractions. Its fine collection of Soviet-era avant-garde art housed in a huge modern museum tops the list of places to visit in Nukus, and its state museum fascinates with a large, diverse collection of archeological and ethnographic pieces. The modern Soviet city emerged from a small settlement in the early 1930s; see the urban panorama and Amu Darya River passing through from its observation wheel. Try the Caucasian specialties and delicious grapes at a local bazaar, and grab a snack at one of the kebab and meat vendors scattered around the town. Nukus is in Republic of Karakalpakstan.
