Nukus (No’kis)/Uzbekistan

Introducing Nukus (No’kis)

The isolated Karakalpak capital lies 166km northwest of Urgench, well beyond the reach of most tourist buses. Nukus (Karakalpak: Nökis), a quiet city of tree-lined avenues and nondescript Soviet architecture, is the gateway to the fast-disappearing Aral Sea and home to a remarkable art museum that for some travellers is worth the hardship of getting here.
