#8 of 27 in Sightseeing in Almaty
Government Building Tourist Spot
The former seat of the Kazak Central Committee of the Communist Party, Akimat House now houses the mayor's office and the city government. The green area around the typical Soviet-era office building, which once served as a venue for parades and demonstrations, features dozens of trees, fountains, and flowerbeds planted with roses. You might see kids and young people skateboarding, cycling, and rollerblading in the park. Akimat House is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Almaty Edition.

Where to stay in Almaty

Accommodations in the urban area of Almaty can be found almost exclusively in the grid-system city center. Located close to the main train station, you'll find hotels both upmarket and budget, with the former enjoying commanding views of the mountains on tree-lined boulevards, and the latter tucked away on the central district's side streets. Ski resorts to the south, as well as wild camping opportunities, provide good options for those wanting to get active and enjoy the surrounding landscape.
