About Almaty

The capital of Kazakhstan, Almati, is a modern and green city. It is especially notable as a ski resort area for the region. Chimbulak Ski Resort and the large Almaty Lake are among the city's natural beauties. In Almaty you can visit places such as Panfilov Park, Green Bazaar, Arasan Baths, Gorky Park, Central Mosque, Republic Square, Zenkov Cathedral and Kok-Tobe. The city gets its name from the hundreds of apple trees dotting the landscape.
 
Almaty is a city with plenty of green space and parks. Located on the historic Silk Road, it is recently becoming wealthy again with more luxury cars and shopping centers popping up. Oil and gasoline are cheap for Kazakhs, so driving a luxury car is all the fashion for the city's inhabitants. The winter months are cold in Almaty, so we can say that the best time to visit is in the Spring.
 
Do not forget to take suitable clothes, as the temperature difference between day and night is very high. Almaty may be a good destination for fans of winter sports such as skiing, ice skating and snowboard and for the ones looking for alternative tracks. Kazakh and Russian are spoken in the country. English may also do the trick. 
 
Almaty International Airport is 16 km away from the city center. You can use a bus, but taxis are the most practical. A ride to the city center will cost about 20 USD.
