Short Journeys: Kazakhstan

75 printed pages
Kazakhstan – the world’s 9th-biggest country, perched in Central Asia bordering China, Russia and other central Asian states. Today it is a country emerging into the world with a vibrant economy, wonderful culture and tradition, and stunning landscapes from the flat steppe to beautiful mountains.
I loved my time in this amazing country. Astana stands somewhere near the middle with its Norman Foster architecture, a Dubai in the middle of nowhere. The future of this exciting country is being created here with some of the most amazing futuristic buildings in the entire world.
In the south is the biggest city in Kazakhstan – Almaty. Full of culture and style, beautifully situated surrounded by mountains, this is the ‘soul’ of Kazakhstan. To the north-west is Semey, an interesting city where you can visit the museum to Kazakhstan’s most revered poet. If that doesn't fulfill you desire to explore the literary history of the region, there is also a small museum to Dostoevsky, in the house where he once lived.
