Almaty is the former capital of Kazakhstan and the largest city of the country. It’s the gateway of many travelers who start their journey in the country.
It served as the capital during the Soviet Union and six years after independence in 1991. Almaty is built on a slope via which travelers can easily navigate the city. It is in the foothills of the Trans-Ili Ala-Tau Mountains. Almaty remains most developed, most ethnically and culturally diverse city in Kazakhstan.
The name Almaty comes from the Kazakh name ‘Alma-Ata’, which means ‘father of apples’. It is believed that the Almaty region is the birthplace of the first apple on earth.
