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 2nd (Sun): take in the spiritual surroundings of Hazret Sultan Mosque, learn about all things military at National Museum of Kazakhstan, then make a trip to The Baiterek Tower, and finally browse the different shops at Khan Shatyr.

Plan my Astana trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Dehradun, India to Astana is an approximately 11-hour flight. You can also drive. In June in Astana, expect temperatures between 30°C during the day and 15°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Sun) to allow time to drive to Borovoe.
