Almaty Kazakhstan - The Commercial And The Cultural Hotspot Of Central Asia

Home » Cities » Almaty Kazakhstan - The Commercial And The Cultural Hotspot Of Central Asia

 

Almaty‘s rather rural-sounding name means ‘apple rich’ — after the renowned quality and variety of the region’s apples. The reality, however, is rather different. Almaty Kazakhstan is the commercial and cultural hotspot of Central Asia, ready to make its mark on the tourist map.

In 1911, a catastrophic earthquake flattened the city. Only the Svyato Voznesenskiy (Zenkov) Cathedral stayed standing. This 54 m (180ft) high edifice is one of the most extraordinary wooden buildings in the world — it was made entirely without nails! It stands, gaudily painted like a giant dolls’ house and surrounded by roses, in the 28 Panfilov Heroes Memorial Park in the city centre.

The main Zelyoni Bazaar is more than just a market; it is a cultural hotchpotch of produce and people from all over Central Asia. Artists display their work in Zhybek Zholy (Silk Road), known locally as Arbat. For a superb view of the city and mountains, take the cable car up to Kok-tube (Blue Hill), or walk up past the marijuana fields. Look out for Hotel Kazakhstan, a 102 m (335 ft) high modernist tower, the tallest building in the city, and the Central Mosque, built in 1999, a wonderfully elegant marble building with a huge blue dome.
