Traveling in Kazakhstan

 

Kazakhstan is a republic in Central Asia. It's the 9th biggest country and is the largest landlocked country in the world.  It's a multinational state, which is inhabited by 17.8 million people, belonging to more than 120 nationalities! Kazakhstan is known as the land of steppes but has in reality a quite diverse nature: from deserts and flat steppes in the West, Center, and South of the country to mountains and lush landscapes in the Southeast and North! It's a country of surprises which any adventurous backpacker will appreciate.
