  • Great place for relaxing townspeople and tourists with lots of entertainment and cafes. The only minus is the dry soil, which do not have time to care, all of which lawn pozhuhlyj. But that's the trouble all over Almaty

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.
