First Akmola, then Tselinograd, and now Astana: the city's latest name means "capital," something Astana became in 1998.
Do your shopping at Khan Shatyr and Astana Allee. Get some historical perspective at Hazret Sultan Mosque and Temple of St. Seraphim of Sarov. When in Nur-Sultan, make a side trip to see Alzhir, Memorial Museum of Victims of Political Repressions and Totalitarianism in Malinovka, approximately Malinovka away. The adventure continues: get engrossed in the history at National Museum of Kazakhstan, take in the exciting artwork at Kulanshi, learn about all things military at Kazakhstan Military History Museum, and see the interesting displays at Saken Seifullin Museum.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Nur-Sultan fast, fun, and easy.
