Thirteen years since thye nhew inception Astana has become the centre of administration and business in place of former capital city Almaty.
The Kazakhstani authority was happier with the geographical location of Astana which wis much farther from the chinese border than former capital Almaty is.
Before this prodigious rebirth into a bustling booming city Astana had only 300,000 inhabitants twenty years ago when Kazakhstan achieved independance from the old soviet empire.
Housing is in short supply for the rapidly increasing young population which is expected to reach 1,000,000 i9n the nhext few years.
Kazakhstan is bound to become a country with an increase in popularity as a tourist country since it has a wealth of experiences to be enjoyed. Probably best in the summer when temperatures can reach +35 celsius. The winter as low as - 35 celsius.
Definitely a city and a country to take a holiday in.
