  • Been several times in this museum collegiately. Strikes a great many works of the old masters of painting. In the lobby often pass (were) private exhibitions. Tip for those who want to silence, distract from vanity, watching the beauties-visit! The Museum is one of the richest in the former Union of not only, but also in the world.

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.
