Monument Kazakh Eli, Astana

4.2
Admire a huge independence monument and a stroll around an elevated, marble-paved plateau at Monument Kazakh Eli, an impressive memorial complex dominating the landscape of central Astana. The 91 m (298 ft) tall column topped by a gilded statue of the mythical magic bird of happiness, Samruk, overlooks a vast open space with a boulevard traversing it. Sit and chill out on one of the numerous benches--wooden or marble--to take in the spirit of the place. Examine monumental bronze sculptures and elegant marble arches leading to the complex, all of which celebrate Kazakhstan’s independence. Well-lit at night, the square makes a nice spot to view the city skyline. Using our world travel planner, Astana attractions like Monument Kazakh Eli can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • The monument is on the less equisite side of possible monutments. The marble plates are white and polished but have no artistic finish, only good enough for minimalistic photographs. The place doesn have food stalls or water fountains so make sure you have a bottle of water at least.
  • This is an interesting monument, which you need to see from a close distance.
  • Great monument
