New Year is the most awaited holiday in Kazakhstan. It is often associated with a sense of miracle and joy. Some of the most spectacular decorations are always installed in the capital, Astana.
Every year the designers and decorators of Astana choose a color theme of the New Year decorations. This year it is turquoise. The landmarks of the city are beautifully decorated in light blue and fresh green colors.
The area around the Baiterek monument is decorated with a large illuminated Palace Wall composition with EXPO-2017 motives. More than 50 buildings will have EXPO-2017 elements in their decorations.
The city administration set up 16 Christmas trees all over Astana. In addition to the 16 main Christmas trees, residents of Astana and local small business also installed their own trees and decorations.
The fountains at “Kazakh Eli” square, Defenders of Motherland monument, School Students Palace and Saryarka district administration were decorated in a fairy-tale style. And unusual light tunnels were installed near the Astana concert hall (former Congress Hall), on Momyshuly avenue and Nurly Zhol boulevard.
This is a wonderful season of the year in Kazakhstan, full of joy and miracle. Happy New Year!
