I lived in Astana for two years as an expat. Not a lot of places to go, but Baiterek and circus. I heard that the big tent for entertainment was opened last year (I left last year too. YOu live there and haven't been around? Well, there's nothing to go anywhere. Go to TGIF, the only American restaurant. There's an Irish steak restaurant, it's passable, but expensive. bring your friend to Almaty, I heard that there's a lot to do there.

Travel Tips for Astana

Contrasts

by Pablos_new

The building on the foreground is typical "Khruschevka" - urgly buildings that were rapidly built after disasters of WWII across all the SU in 50-s...60-s (in times of Nikita Khruschev). Thousands of them are still alive. The district of such buildings is called Tselinograd (name of this town in 50-s).

On the background there are modern block of flats of modern Astana.

Construction site

by Lalique

Being a newly annouced Kazakh capital Astana is under constant construction. Here and there one can see an unfinished constuction sites as if the city is being built from the scratch (which is partially true). It really amasing how quick the erection progress is going.
I went to Astanan with the time gap of a couple of months but on my 2nd time in the city I could hardly recognise some places: the site where they had only a fence, in my 2nd visiti already had a building 2/3 fihished.

Swan island

by Pablos_new

Calm ponds in the city park... Small swan island is decorated with the wooden figures of the heroes of russian fairy tales.... but they are with kazakh faces ;-)) like this Emelya and a Pike-Fish on the photo.

Park is full of summer cafes and restaurants, there are some amusements for children and a "big wheel" to see the city around.

Astana - Zhana Kala

by tashka

"New City"

I had only a couple of days to see Astana, and since it was a business trip, I was pretty busy. And still I was very impressed!

I had been to other cities of Kazakhstan and was happy to finally visit the new capital of the country.

Originally it was a fortress called Ishim, which was built in 1824. Later it grew into the town of Akmolinsk. During the Soviet period, in 1961 it was renamed Tselinograd. During those years the Soviet Union had the idea of developing the virgin lands of Kazakhstan and Tselinograd became the capital of the virgin lands region. In 1991, after the end of the Soviet era, Kazakhstan gained its independence, and the city was renamed into Aqmola. The capital of the new Republic of Kazakhstan was Almaty. In 1997 President Nazarbayev, the first and so far the only President of Kazakhstan, made a decision to move the capital to Aqmola renaming it into Astana.

The President and Parliament aproved the master plan of the city's development. In order to boost investments in the construction of Zhana Kala (the New City) the area of construction was announced to be a free economic zone.

Since that time the city has been developing at a very fast rate with huge amounts of investments flowing into it.

If you visit the city once every six months, each time you will be surprised to see more of new magnificent buildings, which are changing the face of the city, but not spoiling it, since everything is in accordance with the master plan.
