Totally recommend to take a walk on the river side when sunsets. There´s a bridge that takes you to a tivoli. Great for children!

You may long walking next to the river. Off course in January it was so cold but also this is a chance to see the different face of the river.

I visit this river bank often, as I like long walks in the evening. Fresh air both in summer and in Winter. In winter you can also walk on the frozen waters. It's an amazing experience. You can also snowshoe, skii or enjoy snow rides.

On a sunny dry day this is a most tranquil walk completely on the flat with plenty to look at and see as well as take amazing photographs. At night it is spectacular with the lights and fireworks display.

Very lively and colourful led show can be seen on the embarkment of the rived Isim in the evenings. You can walk allround, and rent a boat, so you can admire the light show from the water, too.

My first time vising a beach built along a river! It's very interesting. There's the central park right next to it too.

Along the river Ishim you can walk or run if you want to. It was nice to watch the city`s buildings and silhouette. We also took the riverboat tour. To see the buildings from the boat was fantastic and the duration was just perfect.

Taking a walk around Astana took me to the bridge over the Ishim. I loved the view. Flowing almost imperceptibly with ripplets almost indiscernible, this river was one natural feature of Astana I enjoyed.

Go for it, if you are in a good physical shape and you like the strong winds! The views are great and here you can fully enjoy the city vibes.
