You can see a lot of characteristic bulidings of Kazakstan placed on little artificial mountains and plains of the countryside. The most interesting part of the park is an indoor exhibition, which represents directly the city Astana with its iconic modern buindings - like a...More

The place is not in the easiest accessible place and almost requires a detour from the main attractions. That said, it gives a good impression of major landmarks (and landscapes) in Kazakhstan which is great for a frist time visitor to the country. In all...More

This museum shows almost whole country in miniature, with landscapes carefully created and important buildings constructed. There's also separate pavilion with Astana model, some examples of traditional homes in cave, miniature "wonders of the world" and a kind of history/ethnography museum.

I ended up enjoying this place more than I expected myself to. This is basically a miniature world of Kazakhstan, albeit somewhat disorganised. The quality of the miniatures is not mind-blowingly intricate, but I also don't think that is the point of the place either....More

This miniature park that hosts most attractions of Kazakhstan is certainly interesting as it provides a quick overview over all regions of this large country that you otherwise might miss (e.g. For me particularly the mausoleums in Mangistau were interesting to see as a model)....More

I wish I had gone to this one on my first day in Astana. It's like a miniture world of Kazachstan. It's mostly outside but the depiction of Astana is inside. I wish I had seen this the first day because it has a nice...More
