Astana is the capital of Kazakhstan that was actually built 10 years ago. That time not many people were eager to move from the former capital of Almaty to the new place. But now the city can be proud of a plenty of picturesque constructions some of which will be shown below.
Khan Shatyr is a strange-looking and giant construction that can’t help catching one’s eye.
The transparent tent which is 150 meters high was built in 2006-2010.
It is situated at the very edge of the city and is a real tent in the middle of the field.
It looks even more impressive at night when filled with flickering light.
It is not simple to overcome the desire to enter the place at a frosty winter night.
Here is the plan of the tent.
Welcome inside the construction.
Only a small part of the tent is used that is represented by 5 floors only.
The thing in the center is not a Â thermometer but an elevator.
