Kazakhstan: Astana

The country has had a brand new capital since 1997. The old capital was in the south of the country and is called Almati or earlier Alma Ata. The new capital was called Astana. This city was created in a short time and most of all shows the power of the Kazakh President. Kazakhstan is a dictatorship that has been ruled by the same president for more than 20 years. In the meantime (2019) the capital Kazakhstan has already been renamed again, namely in Nursultan, after the long-standing President of Kazakhstan. Kazakhstan’s new president Kassym-Shomart Tokayev had decided this.
