Kazakhstan is an expansive country of great contrasts. Walking the charming, café and shop lined avenues of Almaty, you may mistake it for Eastern Europe. Aboard a train cruising through the Tian Shan mountains you may mistake your surroundings for the moon. Once a part of the USSR, the Kazakh culture bears traces of both its Soviet history and its traditional nomadic lifestyle. From dramatic, diverse landscapes to futuristic cities, Kazakhstan defies categorization. Travelers here will discover lush valleys, vibrant markets, subterranean mosques, and dazzling skyscrapers. The one certainty in this endlessly fascinating country is adventure.
