Ancient Petroglyphs of Bayan-Zhurek

Between the ridges of Bayan-Zhurek and the Dzungarian Alatau, in the Almaty region, there is a wide valley of Kaskarau. Its beginning lies at the foot of the Dzungarian Alatau, at an altitude of 1,800-1,900 meters above sea level.

In the valley, a significant number of monuments of archeology of different epochs have been found, including ancient petroglyphs – carved or painted images on stones. Photos by: Sergey Terekhov.

Talan Towers, an architectural complex of two towers located in the very center of Astana, was opened in November 2016.

The complex includes a hotel and a business center with offices of the largest Kazakhstan and foreign companies. From here you can enjoy probably the best views of the capital of Kazakhstan. Photos by: Alexandr Kuznetsov.
