Nukus is the capital of Karakalpakstan, located in the northern part of Uzbekistan. Nukus is situated among the three deserts. This is a relatively young city, but thanks to archaeological excavations, the remains of the ancient Shurchi city, built by the Khorezm state in the 3rd century BC, were discovered here.
It is a modern industrial city and administrative center with a developed infrastructure and transport network. Tourists are attracted here by the famous oriental hospitality of the inhabitants, oriental bazaars, ancient legends and traditions, and camel rides in the desert.
