One of the largest and fastest growing countries in Asia is Kazakhstan, whose capital, Astana, has become one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
The history of this city begins with the distant 1830of the year. It was then that on the bank of the Ishim River a fortress was built, which eventually turned into a city. The founder of it is considered to be Colonel Fedor Kuzmich Shubin. The city was named Akmolinsk, which was worn until 1961. At this time, the struggle for the development of virgin lands began, and Akmolinsk became the center of this seed "battle." The Soviet government renamed it Tselinograd, and Kazakhstan, whose capital was at that time in Alma-Ata, acquired another large city, where significant funds were invested by the leadership of the republic and the Soviet Union. In 1992 the name of the city underwent another change: now it was called Akmola.
The city was the second largest and most important inKazakhstan until 1998. President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev in June 1998 by his decree renamed Akmola to Astana and transferred all state and financial objects from Almaty to Astana, making this city the capital of the state.
The Republic of Kazakhstan, the capital of Astana - nowas it now sounds in the world. The result of this transfer was the active development of urban infrastructure, commercial and cultural facilities. The capital began to grow rapidly, turning from a provincial city into a beautiful metropolis with magnificent architectural forms, in which the European and Oriental style is closely intertwined. To build a new Eurasian city, the leading architects of the world were invited to become the president of Kazakhstan, who created a fairy-tale city.
