Beauty-Astana dressed up before the New year
Before the New year the city sparkled with thousands of colorful lights and colors. Unusual installations and sparkling ice figures transformed Astana.
With the arrival of winter, residents and guests of the capital have the opportunity to plunge into the fabulous atmosphere.
On the Central streets installed illumination in the form of snowflakes and patterns on the pillars of street lighting, and at road junctions and sidewalks appeared unusual figures.
The city square, Botanical garden, the territory of EXPO-2017, Zhetysu Park, the territory near the shopping and entertainment center "Khan Shatyr", the Presidential Park, the square near the monument "Kazakh Eli", the Park "Ataturk", the embankment of the Yessil river, the Park "Zheruyyk", the embankment of the Akbulak river and the territory near the sports complex "Alatau" were transformed by three-dimensional scenery, Christmas trees, original gingerbread houses.
But the most favorite among residents and guests of the capital are the embankment of the Yessil river and ice slides, skating rinks. Here, young guests and adults are greeted with ice sculptures, illuminated with colored lights, small and large slides with rental tubes.
Christmas trees installed in the city, one more beautiful than the other.
Traditional decorations were three-dimensional figures of the coming year. They can be seen on pedestals and glowing corridors. Somewhere they are installed in front of the main attractions of the capital.
Recall that the capital launched the winter entertainment format #AstanaWinterland. It includes: 12 thematic areas, 32 ice rinks, 36 ice slides.
The city sparkled with colorful lights, a snowball crunches under your feet, and you want to catch a couple of snowflakes with your hands. Isn't it a magical time before the new year's fairy tale?
Go out for a walk on the square of the capital, ride the slides and skating rinks to feel the atmosphere of the holiday!
