Astana became recently the capital of Kazakhstan. One big part of the city is currently in construction. The crazyness of the projects doesn't stop. The south of the city is concentrated on one axis whith a lot of modern construction. This is maybe this part of the city the most intersting if you visit Astana. You will find the Baiterek Monument with the amazing view of this district and the Presidential Palace. The better moment is at the sunset with this red light which reflects on the windows of the buildings. Otherwise, you will find as well big malls and hotels. One curious and original place is the Khan Shatyr Mall. However Astana is a quiet and safe city.
