Attire

While contemporary Kazakhs wear a considerable number of Western attire, conventional types of Kazakh dress are currently being used too, especially on special events and holidays. Traditional dress to a great extent comprises of huge, shirt-like attires: the Kolek for ladies and for the men we have the long Shapan. These garments will probably be made of fabric or silk during summer. For winter, heavier materials such as fur, hide and felt give more warmth.

For ladies, customary Kazakh dress incorporates different formal hats, which can be worn to demonstrate their relationship status. These differ from the skullcaps worn by unmarried young ladies through to the regularly fancy marriage headdress known as саукеле.

Local culture

The social make-up of this lovely nation is a rich woven artwork, drawing from a wide range of sources. The core of Kazakh culture originates from their unique pastoral nomadic way of life, and a lot of significance is givento the nomadic lifestyle, as well as the conventional yurt residence, a tent constructed with felt, which is still being utilized, both as a house and as a well-known beautifying motive. Kazakh society is by and large based on a somewhat formal family hierarchy, with old individuals holding places of regard and respect. Men assume the key part as head and defender of the family, and they are required to settle on choices which are to the greatest advantage of the family.

Present day Kazakhstan has turned out to be extremely open to outside venture, tourism and also immigration. Kazakhstan is open to tourist and with all the beauty in this nation and the welcoming culture, touring this nation should be at the top of your bucket list.
