    Copyright by Arman Agatayev

    Travel to Almaty, the City of Apples, in the south-east of Kazakhstan. Called the Southern Capital, Almaty is the cultural, financial, educational and tourist centre of Kazakhstan. Situated in the foothills of the Tien Shan, Almaty is now a city of modern architecture, orderly streets lined with trees and adorned with flowers. The snow-capped majestic mountains, lakes and canyons are wonderful to enjoy while skiing or hiking, or simply to be admired from a terrace of a café in the city. If you are looking for some night-time entertainment, the city offers a wide variety of bars, nightclubs, dancing and live music venues offering everything from opera to jazz. Book your flight to Almaty with Air Astana and experience the warm service from the heart of Eurasia.
