Assumption Cathedral, Astana

4.4
#3 of 7 in Historic Sites in Astana
Admire slim snow-white towers, shiny gilt-pointed domes, and blue roofs with side semi-domes at Assumption Cathedral, an elegant place of worship in Astana. Completed in 2009, this 68 m (223 ft) tall structure serves as the main place of worship for Orthodox Christians in the new capital. An impressive triple-decked 18 m (59 ft) tall iconostasis with more than 50 icons, gilded doors, elaborate wood carvings, and gold-leafed murals creates a majestic atmosphere, enhanced by the cathedral's great acoustics. Watch the faithful praying and lighting candles, then pull the ropes hanging from the tower's exterior and ring the bells.

Where to stay in Astana

With the rush of building going on in Astana, the capital city adds more and more accommodations to its urban area each year. Like most planned cities, the development has started from the center and fanned out, latching onto parks and crossroads to make new commercial, business, and entertainment districts. Some sky-high hotels offer all available luxuries and impressive views across the downtown area, while some more humble hotels serve as pleasant but basic options. Hostels with shared rooms, kitchens, and bathrooms sit on the less decorated side streets of the central district.
