Travel to Kazakhstan. The Republic of Kazakhstan shocks the traveler with the majesty of the boundless steppes and the golden domes of mosques, the blue expanses of Lake Balkhash and the modern buildings of Astana. The cities of the Great Silk Road and the Baikonur Cosmodrome are all about Kazakhstan. In remote regions, travelers can discover the untouched nature of Kazakhstan: deserts, ancient cities, beautiful, almost alpine landscapes.
Kazakhstan is located in the very center of Eurasia, to the south of the Ural Mountains. Here, in an unusual way, antiquity and modernity, eastern traditions and western modernism intertwined with each other. Today, the country offers tourists several options for travel: educational tours around the country, ethnic and eco-tours, as well as treatment, hunting, fishing and mountaineering.
In Kazakhstan, it is customary to eat tastefully and without haste. The traditional meal of the Kazakhs begins with dairy drinks: guests are offered koumiss (mare's milk), shubat (camel's milk) or ayran (sour cow's milk), which not only quench thirst, but also strengthen the immune system. Modern national cuisine includes not only native Kazakh dishes, but also many dishes of other nations living in South Kazakhstan. Some dishes are prepared only in a tandoor - a special clay oven. It is believed that the real samsa comes out only in tandyr, it also bakes traditional flat cakes.
