  • You can see the history engraved in the space. Good walking area, with couple of interesting features.  more »
  • Composition of the Park is impressive. The type of monuments symbolizing the war and the victory of Soviet forces in it, goose bumps back. Very patriotic.

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.
