Kazakhstan – Astana

About Astana

Astana became recently the capital of Kazakhstan. One big part of the city is currently on construction. The craziness of the projects doesn’t stop. The south of the city is concentrated on one axis with a lot of modern constructions. This is maybe this part of the city the most interesting if you visit Astana. You will find the Baiterek Monument with the amazing view of this district and the Presidential Palace. The best moment is at the sunset with this red or orange light which reflects on the windows of the buildings.

Otherwise, you will find as well big malls and hotels. One curious and original place is the Khan Shatyr Mall. However Astana is a quiet and safe city.

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.
