Travel to Kazakhstan

Some countries are known for their incredible natural vistas. Other nations are known for their historical sites and cultural roots. Kazakhstan is a country that has a distinctive architectural emphasis that is all its own. You’ll find that this nation feels like a pocket of Europe in Central Asia, yet is still an escape from the modern world.

Korean resettlement in Kazakhstan has also led to the development of many traditions being fused into the local culture. You’ll find Korean salads are very popular, along with many Korean foods and goods featured at local bazaars.

Kazakhstan isn’t always the friendliest country when it comes to temperature. There are days, even in the summer, that are cool and blustery. This has led to the development of sauna complexes in virtually every city. Finnish steam rooms, Russian banyas, and other saunas is a popular place to socialize. You’ll find holiday celebrations are just as common in a sauna here as they would be in a nightclub elsewhere.

Many saunas come equipped with multiple rooms for entertainment. This includes billiards, karaoke stages, and even swimming pools.

Pride is also a primary component of Kazakh culture. One unique component of this culture involves whistling. It is believed than whistling inside a home while in Kazakhstan will make the owner of that property become poor.

Although at first glimpse, the hospitality of Kazakhstan may not seem warm and friendly, the opposite is actually true. There is a certain ruggedness to this culture, but there is also a certain hope for the future that can be found. This makes it one of the most unique opportunities for travel that exists in the world today.
