Other famous attractions include The Pyramid, the Palace of Peace and Reconciliation; Khan Shatyr, a giant transparent tent, the tallest tented construction in the world, and Ak Orda, the new and impressive presidential palace. You can take a walk along the river that bisects the city between the “right bank” and the “left bank” or enjoy a stroll down Republic Avenue, which is the centre of activity with its shops, coffee houses, restaurants and nightclubs.
