First Akmola, then Tselinograd, and now Astana: the city's latest name means "capital," something Astana became in 1998.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Assumption Cathedral and City Park. There's lots more to do: take some stellar pictures from Quay Astana, look for gifts at Astana Allee, take in the spiritual surroundings of Nur-Astana Mosque, and enjoy some diversion at Sport Complex Kazakhstan.
