Nukus is the capital of the autonomous Republic of Karakalpakstan, part of Uzbekistan. The tragedy that befell the Aral Sea had a very strong impact on the life, ecosystem and economy of the cityThe main attraction of Nukus is the famous collection of Igor Savitsky. The museum of the city of Nukus exhibits the second most valuable collection of paintings of the Russian avant-garde of 1920-1930. Savitsky worked as part of the Khorezm Archaeological and Ethnographic Expedition, and then conducted independent excavations and collections of folk and applied art. These collections became the foundation of the museum. This largest art collection covers a period of more than 4 millennia. A special part of the museum's exhibitions is the collection of fine art. Many works of both local and Russian artists who lived in this region, the so-called "Turkestan avant-garde", are presented here.
The collection of the Moscow avant-garde and post-avant-garde of the 1920s-1930s, as well as groups of non-conformists from the Moscow underground of the 1960s-1970s, is also significant. Thousands of works by brush masters who have not received official recognition, have become outcasts in the USSR, and have found refuge in distant Nukus.This museum is called the "Louvre in the Sands" and its visit is worth it to make a long journey to Nukus.After the tour, return to the hotel.Lunch and dinner at the restaurant.Overnight at the hotel
