Nursultan Nazarbayev International Airport (TSE), can be found 16.7 km southeast of Nur-Sultan(formerly Astana). The airport has two terminals, one for international flights and the other for domestic. The new international terminal, T1 was opened in 2017. Transit from the airport into the city is by bus, taxi and car hire.
It was also made the capital of Kazakhstan in place of Almaty, in 1998. Located in the northern part of Kazakhstan, along the Ishim River, Nur-Sultan is characterised by a vast urban area, efficient transport infrastructure, and a favourable environment for residents as well as visitors to the city.
The newest capital city in the world, Nur-Sultan is a hub of innovation with an impressive and futuristic vision. With hints of its Soviet presence still visible on the right bank, the city shows much promise for the future and offers quite a lot to the visitors.
From the panoramic views of the observation deck of the 97m-tall Bayterek tower, to the Presidential Palace with its massive blue-and-gold dome. There is also the Khan Shatyr Entertainment Center, which has much to offer and many more. With its impressive architecture and attractions, Nur-Sultan is proving itself to be a promising up and coming world capital which will grow to attract even more visitors over time.
A direct contrast to the modern and glitzy left bank, Nur-Sultan’s Old Town on the right side has its own brand of appeal. With friendly café and sidewalks, snack stands and lively locals, it is worth a stroll or walking tour to explore this part of the city. The right bank is also much cheaper for shopping and accommodations to those travellers on a budget. While the left bank might feel cold and impersonal sometimes, the right bank is always welcoming and bustling with life. Well worth a visit while in the city.
Mostly centred around mutton and horse meat, Kazakh cuisine is influenced by Central Asia as well as parts of Eastern Europe. Some foods you can expect to encounter include laghman, which is a Central Asian noodle dish, pelmeni dumplings, which is made out of unleavened dough, stuffed with various kinds of meat, such as pork, lamb or beef. You might also be encouraged to try Kumis, a fermented diary drink of much importance to the people of Central Asia. Kumis has a mild alcohol content, and while similar to kefir, it is made from mare’s milk.
