Explore futuristic architecture from the well-manicured central gardens of Astana Allee, a landscape avenue stretching from the modern arch of the state-run natural gas company headquarters, to a giant tent-shaped shopping mall. Climb a huge observation tower with a golden egg-shaped ball on it--representing the egg of a mythical bird--to enjoy a panorama of congressional halls, curved gilt skyscrapers, a giant glass pyramid, a modern mosque, a neo-classical theater, the presidential palace, and a marble-plated triumph arch. Take a stroll around this bizarre scenery, which lights up colorfully at night, and walk the Millennium Axis line, named and designed by a leading Japanese architect. Work out when and for how long to visit Astana Allee and other Astana attractions using our handy Astana holiday planner.

  • Illuminated buildings, illuminations. In the day you may want to go for a walk. Overall, cool place. The contrast of the modernity of the buildings of the SOVIET UNION-is impressive.

  • Fans of modern architecture, will surely be curious to see the new center of Astana, located on the left bank of the river Esil (Ishim). Numerous skyscrapers, who grew up in the middle of the steppe, admire its grandeur. There are creations of world architecture, such as Norman Foster. However, it is worth remembering that in winter it is very cold and summer is very hot. And always blowing strong winds. The best time to visit Astana-May, August, September.

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.
