Astana is a wonderful eastern city and a center of cultural, state and social life of Kazakhstan. The country's new capital (Astana took over the role of capital city from Almaty in 1998),has risen fast from the northern steppe and is already a showpiece for 21st-century Kazakhstan. Its skyline grows more fantastical by the year as landmark buildings, many of them by leading international architects, sprout along the wide boulevards in a variety of Asian, Western, Soviet and wacky futuristic styles. Several spectacular structures are open to visitors and it's hard not be impressed by the very concept of this 'Singapore of the steppe'.
One of the youngest capitals in the world, Astana nowadays offers a variety of opportunities for expats from all over the world. Its diverse nature makes the city welcoming and open, with a bustling lifestyle and majestic landscapes nearby.
Astana is called “the city of visitors”: indeed, the majority of current residents moved to the capital from all over Kazakhstan. The city brims with different temperaments and manners: people from the West are perceived as haughty, Northerners are more restrained, those from the East are conservative while people from the South are more open-minded and adventurous.
