First Akmola, then Tselinograd, and now Astana: the city's latest name means "capital," something Astana became in 1998.
Start off your visit on the 2nd (Tue): browse the different shops at Khan Shatyr, then don't miss a visit to The Baiterek Tower, then brush up on your military savvy at National Museum of Kazakhstan, and finally take in the spiritual surroundings of Hazret Sultan Mosque. On the 3rd (Wed), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: pause for some serene contemplation at Assumption Cathedral, walk around City Park, pause for some serene contemplation at Nur-Astana Mosque, then take in the spiritual surroundings of Temple of St. Seraphim of Sarov, and finally enjoy some diversion at Sport Complex Kazakhstan.

For photos and more tourist information, refer to the Astana road trip tool .

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates to Astana is an approximately 8.5-hour flight. The time zone difference when traveling from Abu Dhabi to Astana is 2 hours.
