Things to do in Astana

OH, yes, Astana; the capital city of the wonderful nation of Kazakhstan. In spite of the fact that Astana was not initially the capital, it has certainly been becoming well-known as one of the best destinations in the nation since 1997. This one of a kind city, which tastefully consolidates ancient, traditional architecture with more modern structures, has developed into one of the greatest business centers on the planet.

To keep touring, people in business and additionally sightseers and the Astana local people engaged, the city gloats an assortment of activities, attractions, restaurants, and much more. So what are the things to do in Astana?

To assist narrow options down for you, I have set aside the opportunity to come up with a snappy list of five things to do while you are in Astana. Have a look at this:

The Bayterek Tower

While the United States has the Statue of Liberty and Paris has the Eiffel Tower, Astana has the Bayterek Tower. In addition to the fact that it is beautiful, it is imperative to the way of life and history of the citizens of this country. The tower takes after a fanciful tree from an account of antiquated nomads of the Kazakh. In this story, an enchanted bird named Samruk lays a huge golden egg in the nest. This story is very evident in the tower’s appearance.

When you reach to the Bayterek Tower, you may just look at the magnificence of it, or go inside and have a look at Astana from the observation deck which is at 97 meters high. You won’t be dissatisfied!

Astana Opera

This theatre, officially called The State Theatre of Opera and Ballet, was opened by the President of Kazakh, NursultanNazarbayev in 2013. The Opera is stylishly satisfying, utilizing more ancient, acclaimed theatres as a muse for its design. The Astana Opera theatre amphitheater has a capacity of up to 1,250 individuals, while the music hall can hold up to 250 individuals. In spite of the fact that it is genuinely new, the AstanaOpera stays aware of other international theatres, attracting thoughtfulness to itself as a commendable place for acting, music, and execution. When you are in Astana, help yourself out and get a show here.

Khan Shatyr

Hey, look over there; is that a carnival tent? No, my companions, which tremendous tent-like structure you find amidst the city is Khan Shatyr, which many individuals consider to be a shopping mall. However, it is something other than that! While Khan Shatyr boasts an assortment of best architect stores, the shopping center additionally incorporates excitement, for example, an arcade focus and shows. Maybe the most dazzling element of Khan Shatyr, though, is the atmosphere organized Sky Beach Club. The Sky Beach Club is a beach and water park that is located on the highest floor of Khan Shatyr. Here, you can appreciate the warm sand that was brought into the country from the Maldives, and also different pools and water slides. In the wake of a prolonged day of shopping and swimming, keep in mind to get a nibble to eat at one of the few diners around. There is presumably that your entire family will be engaged at Khan Shatyr!

Hazrat Sultan Mosque

The Hazrat Sultan Mosque was constructed in 2012 and is said to be a standout amongst the most magnificent landmarks in Astana. This substantial structure took after a luxurious castle and took more than three years to construct by more than 1,500 specialists. The Hazrat Sultan Mosque is named after Sufi sheik Khoja Ahmed Yassawi and is sufficiently huge to the extent that it can house more than 10,000 individuals. This is a completely useful mosque. However, guests are welcome to make a trip and look at the stunning engineering and architecture. You will be just shocked by the excellence you will witness here.

Readers, there you have it. In case you are arranging a tour to Astana, I prescribe that you consider setting aside the opportunity to visit these spots in case you are wondering what to do in Astana. I have gone an extra mile and placed a few links to various tours in Astana;
