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.
