Capital built by Elbasy
Baiterek was among the first buildings built on the Left Bank. There was nothing around. Only steppe. Most people were skeptical about the idea of building a new city. Many thought that this would happen in far distant future.
However, Elbasy had a firm belief in his big dream. He was involved in the design process not only for individual buildings, but also for the city as a whole. The formation of the personality of the first president went parallel with the development of the capital.
