First Akmola, then Tselinograd, and now Astana: the city's latest name means "capital," something Astana became in 1998.
Nur-Sultan is known for shopping, historic sites, and nightlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: take in panoramic vistas at Bayterek Tower, learn about all things military at National Museum of Kazakhstan, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Hazret Sultan Mosque, and pause for some photo ops at Monument to the Soldiers of World War II.

To see where to stay, maps, traveler tips, and more tourist information, read Nur-Sultan vacation builder website.
