Astana is a beautiful city that attracts crowds of tourists from all over the world. Let’s remember the day when the city was declared the new capital of the Republic of Kazakhstan in 1997. This was due to a number of factors. The capital was moved to the central part of the Republic away from earthquake hazard. Besides, the event started demographic development of the northern regions.
Nowadays, Astana is a highly urbanized city with a rapidly developing infrastructure. There is a huge number of exciting modern sites that make the tour around the city unforgettable. The city reflects the ideas of such famous architects as Norman Foster. In 2017, Astana hosted the world’s largest EXPO event dedicated to future energy. The objects of the exhibition are worth paying special attention because it is a city built within the city with enormous pavilions, hotels, entertaining spots in its premises. This event gave a new impetus to the development of the city and its architecture. During the city tour the guests will have a chance to see the buildings and outstanding sites.
