  • In my opinion, Ibrahimovic (or football player of his caliber) complained about the artificial turf Stadium. This is a clear negative. The relatively small capacity minus also (although I like our cute compact "stadionchik"). In the days of matches CHAMPIONS LEAGUE or Europa League Stadium often stuffed chock and really "shakes". Remember my first visit, coincided with the already became the legendary victory of the Karaganda Miner over the Scottish Celtic with a score of 2-0. Here it was the atmosphere! In general the State of sportobekta and its contents do not cause censures. The staff at the match clock too at an acceptable level. In General, I think that people should be proud of this object architectures (except, of course, the shameful moment when the roof started at Muztv prizes).

  • Exceptional sports facility, which hosts football matches and not only. Constantly on this site hosts musical events, shows. Was the opening of the Asian Games. Has reached the roof. Accordingly, kruglodichno is used. On the square in front of the building also hosts a variety of activities-charitable, sporting nature.

  • Such a stadium lacked the capital! Will gladly visit with friends, not ashamed to invite guests have something to brag about. Have been Muscovites, say that even in Moscow no Stadium.

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.
