Astana City Tour
Duration: 3 hours
Welcome to Astana, city of fierce wind, glass skyscrapers & indefinitely beautiful sky! We will be happy to show you the most unforgettable sightseeing points and share with you our vision of one of the newest capitals in the world!
The best way to start city tour of Astana is to visit the Independence Square - possibly one of the largest squares you've ever seen! While the centerpiece of Independence Square is clearly the classical columns, statues and huge pillar with the golden eagle, the surrounding buildings offer a dazzling mix of modern styles.
Now let's walk a little and admire beauty of Hazrat Sultan Mosque, the largest mosque of Central Asia. The colossal building resembles an oriental palace, whose construction involved over 1,500 builders and masters, who with joint efforts created the most beautiful landmark of the capital.
Next place we will take you to is the top of Baiterek Tower, where we will enjoy stunning city view! The tower itself has become the symbol of Astana, its shape represents a poplar tree with a golden egg laid by a magic bird from Kazakh folk tales.
Definitely during our tour we will check out such landmarks of Astana as the Expo area and its centerpiece “Nur Alem”, which is the world’s largest spherical building with the diameter of 80 meters and a height of 100 meters. The buildings served as the Kazakh Pavilion during the EXPO and starting from 2018 it works as a “Museum of Future Energy”. The tour will be finished by visitting the world's largest tent - fabulous Khan Shatyr Shopping Mall.
