Astana is located in the heart of the Kazakh steppe, on the right bank of the Ichim River. It is distinguished by a resolutely avant-garde architecture, which combines skyscrapers, modernist monuments, historic monuments and green spaces.These are the best examples:

  1. Astana has snow from October to May. And this place is very very windy. But, still the architecture there looks impressive. All of this is the new part of city, the left bank of Ishim. The old town, is on the right bank, and it has typical soviet architecture.
