First Akmola, then Tselinograd, and now Astana: the city's latest name means "capital," something Astana became in 1998.
Start off your visit on the 1st (Sat): learn about all things military at National Museum of Kazakhstan, take in the spiritual surroundings of Hazret Sultan Mosque, then buy something for everyone on your list at Khan Shatyr, and finally don't miss a visit to The Baiterek Tower. Here are some ideas for day two: pause for some serene contemplation at Temple of St. Seraphim of Sarov, have fun at Sport Complex Kazakhstan, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Nur-Astana Mosque, then walk around City Park, and finally pause for some serene contemplation at Assumption Cathedral.

To see photos, maps, other places to visit, and tourist information, use the Astana trip planner.
