Monument Kazakh Eli, Nur-Sultan

4.2
Admire a huge independence monument and a stroll around an elevated, marble-paved plateau at Monument Kazakh Eli, an impressive memorial complex dominating the landscape of central Astana. The 91 m (298 ft) tall column topped by a gilded statue of the mythical magic bird of happiness, Samruk, overlooks a vast open space with a boulevard traversing it. Sit and chill out on one of the numerous benches--wooden or marble--to take in the spirit of the place. Examine monumental bronze sculptures and elegant marble arches leading to the complex, all of which celebrate Kazakhstan’s independence. Well-lit at night, the square makes a nice spot to view the city skyline.

  • Monument and independence square, as in all former Soviet republics. Unlike some, the larger, larger, free space is unoccupied. It is obligatory to visit, as there are many tourist sites, the main mosque of the city, the national museum, the Nazarbayev Museum.

  • Amazing landmark! I'd highly recommend the kazakh Eli wall as I feel it's the center off something beautiful, surrounding it has many other remarkable landmarks as you can see in the drone photos I've taken :)
