Kazakhstan also offers sights and attractions like Bayterek, Central State Museum of Kazakhstan, Khan Shatyr Entertainment Center, Palace of Peace and Reconciliation, Nur-Astana Mosque, and Almaty Tower, to name a few. Palace of Peace and Reconciliation, or Бейбітшілік пен келісім сарайы in Kazakh, translated as the “Pyramid of Peace and Accord”, is a 77-metre-high building located in Astana, Kazakhstan. Covering an area of 28,000 square metres or 300,000 square feet, the palace area features the pyramid which was constructed to host the Congress of Leaders of World and Traditional Religions with various religions accommodated such as Islam, Christianity, Buddhism, and Hinduism, among others. The palace’s pyramid area was built with five storeys or parts of the triangle, with each triangle measuring at 12 metres per side.

From Almaty International Airport, some of the short-haul destinations that should not be missed include Saint Petersburg, Russia; Beijing, China; and Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. Saint Petersburg in the country of Russia is known for points of interest like the Hermitage Museum, Saint Isaac’s Cathedral, Peter and Paul Fortress, Winter Palace, Church of the Savior on Blood, Peterhof Palace, Catherine Palace, and more. The Peter and Paul Fortress is the original citadel in Saint Petersburg. Founded in the early 1700s by Peter the Great, and designed by Domenico Trezzini, the citadel worked as a prison used by the tsarist government in the early 20th century. Nowadays, the citadel has been adapted as the primary part of the State Museum of Saint Petersburg History, with the museum being almost solely owned of the fortress building, with the exception of Saint Petersburg Mint also within the building.
