Impressive monument situated uphill in Almaty, but a rewarding visit. The monument is surrounded by historical moments in Kazakhstan’s past, and notable figures. To get a good picture of the whole site you need to cross a busy road, so take care when doing so.

The open square centers on a column topped by the Golden Man standing on a snow leopard. Other statues of local significance surround it. Government buildings abut the square.

This large sqaure hosts a lot of soviet style monuments, buildings and sculptures. You can walk around and see some of them according to your preference. From the square when the weather is good there is also a magnificent view on the mountains.

Another place to witness old architectures of the former Soviet Union. If you are not lazy to walk around you will also see the presidential residence and the national museum nearby.

We managed to see fireworks while walking through this place. After asking around, we realized that the fireworks were set off due to the 1000th anniversary of the city. The scene was beautiful, with all the historic buildings in the foreground and the fireworks at...More

Full ensemble of buildings, including parliament, get a real dose of Kazkahstan and Kazakh SSR history. The architecture is from the 1970s and you kind of feel taken back into time to that era, except for the advertisements. You see the 2 apartment buildings across...More
