It was nice to see the size of the country and the variety. But difficult to follow since numbers were not easily followed and did not come in numerical order

Very informative museum on Kazakhstan history. There are a lot of little makets of real buildings devided by regions. Should be interesting for little children. Entrance fee 250 tenge (2$). You may take a guide who will explain details - 200 tenge(1.5$).

I nearly fell off my chair when I saw how this was rated, having just visited this with my teenaged children. The idea is a perfectly good one - think Legoland, but the result is dire and the whole set up is tired and dilapidated. The main problems are that the buildings are all totally out of scale with each... More

After Baiterek Atameken should definitely be your No 2 sight-seeing in Astana. It represents a map of Kazakhstan (with pretty much all the major cities) with miniature buildings, mountains, railroads adn pretty much everything that could be interesting in Kazakhstan. For those who haven't been to other regions of the country it would be possible to see how big Kazakhstan... More

This was a unique and memorable experience! It is basically a large park that represents the terrain of Kazakhstan. There are replica buildings (larger than actual scale), a raised platform that contains the unique buildings of Astana, and a small museum. It is definitely worth a visit.

I just went there. It was nice as it gave a good flavour of what was in Kazakhstan. It would be easier to understand it however if you know Russian. They advertise an English guide, but when we went it was not available. With the guide I am sure it is excellent

The idea of Atameken is a piece of land shaped like the map of Kazakstan. It represents sightseeing of entire country as small copies placed in their respective areas. If is very good to start travel in Kazakhstan from this park.

A strange jumble of models of Kazakh buildings, monuments etc spread out on a rough map of Kazakhstan. Even spacing of models takes precedence over cartographical accuracy. Interesting nonetheless, although the hidden grove of models of buildings from around the world suggests that Kazakhstan still needs a few spectacular edifices. The best thing is the raised model of Astana, clearly... More
