Nur-Sultan - Symbol of Independent State
December 10th is a historical day for Kazakhstan. Exactly 22 years ago on this day, the capital city of the country has moved from Almaty to Akmola under the First President’s Decree. Over these years, Nur-Sultan has become the main symbol of the country and one of the most beautiful capital cities in the heart of Eurasia.
World-class architects such as Kisho Kurokawa, Norman Foster and Manfredi Nicoletti were involved in the construction projects of the new capital city.
Today, the city is not only the financial center of the region, but also an authoritative dialogue platform. Significant decisions of global importance are made in the capital as well. This proves that the capital of Kazakhstan is a center of peace and reconciliation.
The UNESCO has awarded the capital city of Kazakhstan as The City of Peace. History of the city’s formation can be accessed in archives.
“There are nearly 700 funds and 300,000-400,000 documents in the city archive. This is not only a history of the capital city but also it is the history of the country and the nation at large. Currently, all our archive materials that might be of the great importance are being digitally transformed,” said Head of Research Department for State Archive of Nur-Sultan City ,Gaziza Isakhan.
