    Very cool to be in a hot climate the park with pond, beautiful well maintained, of course everything is refined more under children, but it is correct.

    In the Park and inside the water park wherever you need to be treated to pay cash, so keep this in mind. Everyone else liked it. Attractions and there are enough old-style Soviet "chains" (chain-carousel), "high heels", "surprise" and so on, and more modern. The child can roll on a horse, there is a rope "Park". There are figurines of cartoon heroes, but they can be photographed for a fee-with local photographer on his cam or just pay him (so he said). Park liked it. On his visit went in the other day to longer swim and ride with water slides. There are also a couple of pools and deeper for adolescents and adults who ride with slides and one just for swimming (although it is quite small for such a mass). Most importantly, a lot of Greens. 2GIS led for the second time on the other side of the Park and there was a parking space, and a number of pretty scored-virtually no parking and you have to get on the floor-one quarter.

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.
