Almaty, the former capital, still stands as the country's largest city.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes State Academical Opera and Ballet Theatre as well as Big Almaty Lake. Visiting Shymbulak Ski Resort and Lake Issyk will get you outdoors. Museum-lovers will appreciate Central State Museum of Kazakhstan and Museum of Folk Music Instruments named after Yihlasa. Explore Almaty's surroundings by going to Ancient Town Talgar (in Talgar), Turgen Waterfalls (in Turgen) and Kapchagay Reservoir (in Kapchagay). There's still lots to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Ascension Cathedral, have fun at Medeu Skating Rink and Ski resort, admire the masterpieces at A. Kasteyev Museum of Fine Arts, and admire the natural beauty at The Botanical Garden.
