Almaty, Kazakhstan 2017

My second visit to Almaty, the former capital of Kazakhstan, had not only beautiful weather to offer but also lots of things to explore. We started our day by walking to a cable car taking us on top of a mountain called “kok tobe” which offers a nice view on the city. Located up there is a huge radio tower and a weird amusement park including a little zoo. Afterwards we took the new build metro to the “green market”, which seems to be the city centre. There is a beautiful cathedral located in the nearby park which reminded me of moscows cathedrals. Undeniable is the sovjet influence into Kazakhstan´s culture as everything is written in cyrillic and most of the city was build during that time.
