You will most definitely discover something new here. Kazakhstan is an ideal country for those who like to travel off the beaten tourist path. The best times to go are spring and autumn. The climate is continental, and it can get quite cold in the winter, especially in the north, and unbearably hot in the summer, especially in the south. But regardless of the weather, it’s worth visiting the country for its nature. Kazakhstan has majestic mountains, crystal-clear lakes and endless prairies.
The easiest way to get there is to fly to one of the major cities. Aeroflot operates direct flights to nine: Almaty (4 hours 25 minutes), Karaganda (3 hours 40 minutes), Astana (3 hours 20 minutes), Aktobe (2 hours 25 minutes), Aktau (2 hours 25 minutes), Atyrau (2 hours 25 minutes), Kostanai (2 hours 35 minutes), Shymkent (4 hours) and Kyzylorda (2 hours 30 minutes). To save money, look for round-trip tickets and remember to book in advance, as the best fares sell out quickly.
