The most economically advanced of the Stans, Kazakhstan is an enigmatic amalgamation of modernity and tradition. Discover the worldÃ¢Â‚¬Â„¢s largest landlocked country, beginning in the glittering capital of Astana. Marvel at its futuristic architecture, including the spectacular Astana-Baiterek Monument. Pay your respects at AlzhirÃ¢Â‚¬Â„¢s memorial complex and museum, reflecting on StalinÃ¢Â‚¬Â„¢s repressive reign. Take a boat ride along the Ishim River. Travel the foothills of the Trans-Ili Alatau mountains to Almaty to visit the Central State Museum. The highest skating rink in the world boasts panoramic views of the city and the mountains from Kok-Tobe hill.
