Kazakhstan

Discover how this captivating country continues to live up to its name as the “land of the wanderers”.

Intro

Most famous for its abundant oil reserves as well as its controversial "depiction" in the movie 'Borat', Kazakhstan is the largest landlocked country in the world, roughly the size of Western Europe - and the most economically advanced of the Stans. Lying at the crossroads of ancient civilisations, Kazakh ancestry can be traced back to the invading Mongol hordes of the 12th and 13th centuries. Though the population remained largely nomadic until the 20th century, today Kazakhstan is ethnically diverse, rich in culture and wears its ancient heritage with pride.

Take in the Soviet-era architecture reminiscent of parts of Europe as you wander the leafy avenues of Almaty and marvel at the bold, futuristic structures of the capital city, Astana. Discover Kazakhstan’s cinematic natural landscapes - from the sweeping steppes to the icy peaks of the imposing Tian Shan mountains. Marvel at the striking rock formations of the magnificent Sharyn Canyon, explore ancient burial grounds in rolling sand dunes, and watch emblematic eagle-hunters in action. Despite its ever-growing modern cities, Kazakhstan still proudly retains many of its traditions and customs.
