If you find yourself in Astana, Kazakhstan, you should stop by the Palace of Peace and Reconciliation. President Nazarbayev described the Palace, "The four sides of our Palace are oriented to the four sides of the world. In some sense this construction embodies independent Kazakhstan that friendly embraces all people of all nations and practicing different religions." The Palace was... More

Beautiful place to visit in Astana. Especially in hot summer time. Inside there are museum, concert hall, boutiques etc. Outside fountains especially beautiful at sunset.

This beautiful building located in a quite park. If you decide to spend your time in a nice and beautiful park and have a chance to see a phographic view, it is one of the best choices in Astana. This building relate to friendship commuinacation between Khazakhestan Tajikestan and Uzbakestan as friend countries.

A very serene and quiet place to visit. The museum parts are closed at the moment however. Best to visit for a concert or opera performance.

Not much to see, to tell the truth. There is a museum upstairs and an Art gallery Kulanchi which is worth seeing. The park around the Palace is picturesque if the weather is good))

Arrived on a very cold, snowy day, to be told that the elevators were not working for an indefinite period, and to try coming back next month! We were permitted to walk around the ground floor, but no trip up to the top. We asked if we could walk up, and were told no. Hmmph!

We had a guided tour (in English). Taking the elevator up to the 3rd floor and then the steps to the sumiit was fun and interesting. You can stand on a spot right under the summit of the pyramid and make a wish. And on the top floor there's a quite remarkable meeting room. Doesn't cost much and there's not... More

It is not expensive, and they do offer tours in English (I got a personal tour since I was the only English only person). Opera house on bottom two floors, then a large meeting hall, the garden area and finally the circular conference room at the top. Not that much history, but if you go to Astana why not check...
