The Savitsky Museum
The Savitsky Museum houses one of the most remarkable art collections in the former Soviet Union. The museum owns some 90,000 artefacts and pieces of art – including more than 15,000 paintings – only a fraction of which are actually on display. About half of the paintings were brought here in Soviet times by renegade artist and ethnographer Igor Savitsky, who managed to work within the system to preserve an entire generation of avant- garde work that was proscribed and destroyed elsewhere in the country for not conforming to the socialist realism of the times.

Breathtaking Buzkashi

Buzkashi, is a traditional Central Asian team sport played on horseback. Buzkashi, which is translated as "goat grabbing", is a national sport of Central Asia. The steppes' people are skilled horse riders who can grab a goat or calf from the ground while riding a horse at full gallop. The goal of a player is to grab the carcass of a single headless goat or calf, and steer the carcass through the other players without dropping it. If the rider successfully alludes the other players, he will then pitch the carcass across a goal line or into a target circle to win.

Riders usually wear heavy clothing and head gear to protect themselves against other players' whips and boots. Games can last for several days, and the winning team receives a prize, which is not necessarily money, as a reward for their win.

This fascinating game is very popular among Central Asian nomads and attracts the attention of anyone who has ever heard of this exciting game.
