    On the 23rd of photo: a monorail?

  2. Zonda says:

    Very nice architecture. Also I consider the name of the town – Astana, one of the most inspired. I like it!

    masonic signs everywhere

    On the one hand, I applaud this beautiful and imaginative construction. On the other hand, I am appalled that it comes at the expense of impoverishing the people and stealing from them their basic freedoms.

    Unimpressed. Half-empty gaudy monuments to naked capitalist greed. And displacing poor people is de rigueur for bloated bureaucracies.

    I can’t believe that screen reads -25 C. Never in my life have I been to a place that cold.

      Only -25 ? There are places in Russia with -60 C :-) Photos of some of them are on this server too, there ia thermometer on one building. Central heating tubes must be heated to prevent freezing of hot water :-)

    Very impressive architecture. I hope that the owners of the displaced residences will be fairly compensated or relocated to fine accommodation.

  8. Taisto says:

    Such a twisted society.

    where’s borat?

  10. Jaures says:

    Khan Shatyr is sorta reminiscent of Tatlin’s Monument to the Third International.

  11. Kaputnik says:

    I’ve seen Mongols and people of the steppe and I’ve seen yurts, but that monument is a YURT DAMMIT!!
