First Akmola, then Tselinograd, and now Astana: the city's latest name means "capital," something Astana became in 1998.
Kick off your visit on the 11th (Sun): make a trip to Monument Kazakh Eli, take in panoramic vistas at Bayterek Tower, stroll around City Park, then pause for some serene contemplation at Nur-Astana Mosque, and finally take some stellar pictures from Quay Astana. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: pause for some photo ops at Monument to the Soldiers of World War II, take an in-depth tour of Alzhir, Memorial Museum of Victims of Political Repressions and Totalitarianism, buy something for everyone on your list at Khan Shatyr, then admire the local landmark of Fountain Circus, and finally take in the architecture and atmosphere at Assumption Cathedral.
