Kazakhstan – Almaty

About Almaty

In the past, Almaty was the capital of Kazakhstan. The city is old and the infrastructures are very used like the roads for example. There is a contrast with Astana which develops quickly and modernizes the city. Although the city is old, Almaty keeps her charm. You will find a lot of pretty things like terraces of restaurants opened the summer, street food, small streets with green trees, old monuments and old houses …

People are welcoming and the city is totally safe. One place I advise to visit absolutely is Kokthobe. You need to use the cable car near the Republic Place. The place is totally amazing and familial (mini zoo, attractions, shops, restaurant). One of the place to do around Almaty is the Cheryn Canyon. There is others places to visit but this one deserves to be seen. You will find information with this company “Track Kz” who takes pleasure to guide you.

Discovering the world, meeting new people around us who create our World. Being opened to others, keen in their lifestyle, their culture, their desires, their religion, their happiness and their aim. During the last few years, I’ve had the luck to travel in countries that are important to me. Each trip is a new experience : one way to get knowledge about the country, to understand and to have one point of view without relying on books. ROMNES World is primarily a blog where I express my passion for photography and travels through anecdotes and basic information about each countries I have been to.
