    I think or historical value I don't know, but the atmosphere is nice. I'd stop going to zenkov Church feels.

    It is a statue that is located in a verdant Park. Like the popular spots to take wedding photos in, I saw a couple of dresses and tuxedos are set. In the morning then light would take pictures of the statue.

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.
