Relax and enjoy the large fountain at First President's Park, a 73 hectare (180 acre) arboretum set against a backdrop of spectacular mountains. Opened in 2013, the park features an elegant turquoise-domed observation deck and a curved colonnade with a marble arch commemorating the country's independence. Meanwhile, an elaborate fountain with light and music shoots water up to 30 m (98 ft). Paved lanes, flower beds, birch and fir trees, and numerous benches create an easy atmosphere for a stroll. Take some water with you as there are no shops in the park.

    The Park is very large, perhaps the first time all its not obojdesh. The central place is of course a cascade of fountains at the entrance. Lots of space for children to run, ride. Enough benches, you can always find a place where to sit. Lack of opportunities to buy something to drink and eat. People don't come in 5 minutes and it turns out, if the child asks for water, and you didn't bring it with you, you have to fold and go.

    Convenient and close to the location of the Park makes it the most visited Almaty, clean air, friendly, quiet, and indescribable natural beauty look. The Park is required to visit the city and especially local residents. Every time I come to this park enjoy your body and soul. For all who value solitude with nature in the city.

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.
