Almaty, the former capital, still stands as the country's largest city.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Lake Issyk and Museum of Folk Music Instruments named after Yihlasa. Venture out of the city with trips to Kapchagay (Nomad Fortress & Tamgaly Tas). There's still lots to do: get great views at Kok-Tobe Hill, admire the masterpieces at A. Kasteyev Museum of Fine Arts, appreciate the history behind Glory Memorial, and walk around Park Named After Panfilov’s 28 Guardsmen.
