Capital and Almaty among mountains

Day 1 Astana

Astana, today’s capital of Kazakhstan, is a city that has been developing very dynamically in the past 20 years. Before Astana became the capital of Kazakhstan, it was one of the regional centers in Kazakhstan. At that time it was hard to foresee that Astana would one day develop into this large capital. The presidential decree moved the capital from Kazakhstan from Almaty to Astana and gave the city all the opportunities for rapid development.

City tour: You will see the city’s landmark, Baiterek tower by British architect Norman Foster, the entertainment center Khan Shatyr (the largest tent in the world, 150 m high, made of sun-permeable plastic with shutters, wild water rink, spa center, restaurants, cinema and much more), Opera, Atameken and others sights.
