Astana is a new capital of Kazakhstan, which breaks the pattern concerned slumbery Central Asia. It’s a modern and dynamic city with skyscrapers, monuments, broad avenues and alleys of vocal fountains. European-like streets belong with eastern décor and national traditions creating an original pattern. The symbols of Astana are the Tower of Bayterek and the Pyramid of Peace. The Ishim river waterfront, which reflects the lights of the city, looks great.
