Nukus, the capital of Uzbekistan's autonomous Republic of Karakalpakstan, might not be the most glamorous city in the country, but it has a hidden gem - the Savitsky Museum, which holds one of the world's most remarkable collections of Soviet avant-garde art. The city itself is a juxtaposition of Soviet-era architecture and a friendly local population. Nukus is also the gateway to the Aral Sea, a lake that has shrunk dramatically in recent decades, but the "ship graveyard" on its shores is a haunting reminder of the environmental challenges of the region.
