Kazakhstan is a country of a rich historical and cultural past. Located in the heart of Eurasia, Kazakhstan has long been at the intersection of the world’s ancient civilizations and the crossroads of transport arteries.  Here meet the East and the West, the South and the North, Europe and Asia’s largest countries with their social, economic, cultural and ideological aspects. Many nations with authentic culture and history came to birth and replaced each other throughout the various stages of history on the territory of Kazakhstan.

 Almaty is the largest city of Kazakhstan. Capital of the Kazakh Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic (1927-1936), Kazakh Soviet Socialist Republic (1936-1991), and the Republic of Kazakhstan (1991-1997). The latest capital and the largest city the Kazakh Soviet Socialist Republic, Almaty then became the first capital and the largest megalopolis of the modern Kazakhstan. Although the city no longer has the status of the political and administrative capital, it is the cultural and financial center of the country and remains to be the only city with population exceeding one million.

Sun-kissed Almaty is a warm and welcoming city buried in verdure with wide streets, beautiful buildings, numerous parks, squares and fountains. A beautiful city backed by the emerald Tien Shan is called “garden city” for a reason – with every spring the southern suburbs are smothered in flowers of orchards of apples, apricots and cherries, enveloping the city into a fairy tale. Dressed in lush green and with magnificent mountains as the backdrop, Almaty truly stands out.
