One of the world’s largest nations in terms of land area, Kazakhstan is located in Central Asia, right between Russia and China. Most of the country is steppe or semi-arid desert, so most Kazakhs live in the northern parts, which get more precipitation. Astana, the capital of Kazakhstan, is a city few Westerners have heard of. Yet, it has been the capital of Kazakhstan for over a century now. Over the years, Astana has grown into a modern metropolis, reflecting the rapid industrialization of the Kazakh people and the country's position at the crossroads of the Western and Eastern worlds. Astana is also the perfect starting point for a journey into the vast steppes of the Kazakh steppe, where you can travel by horse-drawn cart, and where you can still see nomadic tribes living much as they have for thousands of years.
