Nur-Sultan

3.9
First Akmola, then Tselinograd, and now Astana: the city's latest name means "capital," something Astana became in 1998. Standing alone on the vast expanses of the steppe, Kazakhstan's shiny new capital is growing into its role, with an ever-expanding mix of space-age buildings, capital-worthy infrastructure, and cultural attractions spread throughout the city's wide boulevards. Work remains ongoing in all of these areas, but already you'll find plenty of things to do in Astana. A number of national museums, concert halls, sports venues, and futuristic buildings designed by some of the world's leading architects provide highlights during the daytime. After dark, the astonishing architecture lights up in dazzling colors, creating the perfect setting for the city's vibrant, ever-improving nightlife. Our Kazakhstan trip planner allows you to plan your trip to Nur-Sultan and a wealth of other destinations big and small.

Where to stay in Nur-Sultan

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.
