Traveling by train across Kazakhstan

Kazakhstan has an extensive railway network with a total length of about 15,000 kilometers. Due to geographical features, trains play a crucial role in the life of the country.

More than 68% of the total turnover and over 57% of the country’s passenger traffic is made by railways. More than 125,000 people, accounting for nearly 1% of the population of Kazakhstan, are employed in the railway industry.

Railway transport is the main way to travel in Kazakhstan. Thanks to the following video you can see how traveling by train across Kazakhstan from south to north (from Almaty to Petropavl) looks like.
