NARIMA MUKHAMBETALINA, SPOKESPERSON, ASTANA CITY DEPARTMENT OF CULTURE AND SPORTS:
- Tickets for events can be purchased at five different locations throughout the city. More information is available on the website. The main goal of the website is to provide full information about all the events in Astana. The website astana.day.kz is accessible from May to September.
Within a month, residents and guests of the capital can attend the Astana Karnaval festive parade, musicals from ‘I love Astana’ series, the Astana Art Fest and the ‘Astana Tartu’ music festival. Each region of Kazakhstan will present the capital new architectural monuments as a gift. For example, a new monument will be erected by the Karagandy region while a light musical fountain will be placed in front of the Astana Arena stadium. The fountain will be built by the East Kazakhstan region. Residents of the city became acquainted with the anniversary program and assess the website.
