The symbol of the city is the Baiterek monument, the tree of the life of the people, rooted in the ground by roots, and the crown resting on the sky. To make the city even more comfortable for life, it is diligently planted with trees. And in the evenings many central buildings are beautifully illuminated.
Earlier Astana was a small city at the intersection of trade routes. It was called Akmola, Tselinograd, Akmola. By the decree of the President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev, the city was renamed into Astana, giving it a new life – the capital.
