  • Almaty

The city of Almaty is the southern capital of Kazakhstan, or also called the city of apples. The city which was formed more than a century ago, has come a long way from the village to the modern metropolis.

Even before the city was laid, one of the main arteries of the Great Silk Road, which had an important geographical and economic position, passed here. The city continues to remain one of the main economic and cultural centers of the country, which remains attractive for different spheres of business.

In addition to the unique location, there the architectural monuments of last century contrast sharply with modern buildings, that extend to the mountains of Ili Alatau. And the high-altitude resort of Shymbulak, located near the city, is often called the Kazakhstan Alps.

International meetings are actively held in the city. The city hosted the participants and guests of the Winter Universiade 2017, the 2011 Winter Asian Games. And of course, the city has all the infrastructure for carrying out activities of various levels.

Astana is the second largest city and capital since 1998 with a population of over 1 000 000 people. The city is divided into the right and left bank of Ishim river, whereas development of left bank of Astana was launched only in 2000 year and it is growing rapidly in Central Asia.

The main conception of Astana city project is symbiosis of urban life with nature. As a matter of fact, the city which was built in the bare steppe is already surrounded by a real forest, so called “green belt”, which creates a more comfortable microclimate in the main city of the state.

Astana is the city of future, where you can see ocean creatures, exotic plants, palm trees, tented beach in the mid of the Great Steppe. Moreover, this region is rich for its incredible wildlife, only few hour drive from Astana you can meet the local habitants, such as Pink Flamingoes, Argali, Saigas, Marmots, Steppe Eagles …

Astana became the place, where the worldwide events hold, OSCE summit, Winter Asian Games 2011, international meeting on Syria, Astana Economic Forum, which shows the readiness of the capital for diverse and big events. As another good example of it was the international event EXPO 2017 exhibition, where over 100 countries have participated and around 4 000 000 people have visited during this event

Located in the heart of Eurasia, this place always was the bridge connecting East and West from ancient time and nowadays new Astana city continuing to be one of important spot in Central Asia.
