Almaty Flights Guide
One of the least-visited areas in the world is Central Asia, and Almaty is the epicenter. Although it is no longer the capital of Kazakhstan, it is still the largest city. It occupies a breathtaking location near the foot of snowcapped mountains, making it not only a center of culture but of geographic beauty as well.
Central Asia was the stomping grounds of the Mongol Empire, and of Soviet Russia. Today it is finally independent, and thriving. A modern city, it is relatively expensive. Nonetheless, there are many things worth seeing. The National Museum is the necessary starting point, where one can contextualize their experience of the city in a historic light. The Presidential Palace sits just across the way. At Republic Square, the city has its center, and the golden monument in the center is of the national hero Altyn Adam, who one will have learned about in the museum. Almaty sits in the heights, and gets very cold in the winter. Ice skating is a popular activity, and Medeu is an Olympic-sized outdoor rink where residents go to skate. For a view over the entire city, a cable car brings one to the top of Kok-Tobe. It will be difficult to resist the panoramic, which is just the beginning of the outdoor excursions that the area around Almaty is known for.
Almaty International Airport is served primarily by Air Astana and SCAT. Many other airlines arrive as well, including Wizz Air, Air Baltic, EgyptAir, Hainan Airlines, Lufthansa, British Airways and more.
