  • There is something to see. Many citizens of Kazakhstan do not know their country. And it was very interesting for us to "travel" to the country. A separate room is made for significant objects layouts. Interesting and informative. Resembled the mountains, visited the cave mosque and surprised a large number of mausoleums.

  • Nice buildings but not organized. There is no one single route. The Astana part is more organized
  • Good coverage of various places in Kazakhstan, though not amazing in the detail. Entrance was cheap, and the place would be great for kids.
  • Not an attractive place for tourists, who know next to nothing about Kazakhstan.. Good for local people
  • Terrible, old and not interesting.
  • Bello, mini astana e mini Kazakhstan

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.
