This is a beautiful park to walk around especially during the summertime. In the winter, it's a bit too cold, but in the summer, you're really able to get the full effect of a lively city.

The advantage of building from scratch is that you can be imaginative, unconstrained and ambitious. This is a 'park' surrounded by surreal architectural masterpieces. It conforms to a formal design but then surprises with sculptures, art pieces and colorful contrasts, Very grand in style and impressive in accomplishment

More that 4km walk in the more modern and amazing part of the Kazakhstan capital. Good for adults, children and also people with reduced mobility. Nice views of the tall buildings designed by famous architects, the path is also full of contemporary art installations.

This is what you see when you are in the middle of the city of Astana. Stretching from the Presidential palace all the way to the Baytarek, you definitely wont miss it. It might be a long walk to cover all major attraction within this park, but it is definitely worth time spent.

The City Park was a nice place to stroll along and watch the various water fountains, especially the 'Musical' one! Even in September there was a vibrant colour display from all the flowers that were in bloom, while there are numerous small snack bars close by as you stroll through.

A good place to enjoy a sunny day in Astana. Don't forget to look around the park from the top of Baiterek tower. You will like the park even more at this angle.

This is a very wide bricked area stretching from the Khan Shatyr, the Norman Foster tent-like shopping center, on the western end to the Presidential Palace on the eastern end near the Isham River. Just before the Khan Shatyr is the "I love Astana" sign for photos and plenty of interesting architecture along the way. The Bayterek Tower is near... More

Basically its a straight road going through left bank of the city connecting such attractions as presidential palace, Baiterek and Khan shatir shopping mall. Good for a walk ( will take about 40 mins) so you can see things listed above and the modern architecture of this part of the city. But other than walking and looking around there is... More

We took a taxi to the large shopping mall shaped like a massive tent at one end of the City park and then walked the full length to the Presidential Palace at the other end - about 2 miles. As it was the National Holiday celebrating 25 years since the foundation of the City and the President's birthday, the streets... More
