You can see a lot of characteristic bulidings of Kazakstan placed on little artificial mountains and plains of the countryside. The most interesting part of the park is an indoor exhibition, which represents directly the city Astana with its iconic modern buindings - like a...More

I ended up enjoying this place more than I expected myself to. This is basically a miniature world of Kazakhstan, albeit somewhat disorganised. The quality of the miniatures is not mind-blowingly intricate, but I also don't think that is the point of the place either....More

This miniature park that hosts most attractions of Kazakhstan is certainly interesting as it provides a quick overview over all regions of this large country that you otherwise might miss (e.g. For me particularly the mausoleums in Mangistau were interesting to see as a model)....More
