The location

When you enter Kazakhstan, you truly feel like a pioneer. You get the impression that you are the only tourist there. And there are so many places to visit! If you love unspoiled nature, crazy original architecture, and something completely unexpected, it is a perfect choice for you! In Kazakhstan, among other things, you can find miles and miles of intact desert-like landscape with colourful white-red-golden Aktau Mountains, Charyn Canyon, which resembles the famous Grand Canyon and spectacular mountainous lakes – Almaty lake with unbelievably blue, milky waters and Kaindy lake, which was formed after a landslide flooded a part of the forest leaving dry trunks protruding out of the surface. If you think Kazakhstan is poverty-ridden, visit Astana and you’ll think you’re a mini-Dubai. Skyscrapers, fountains, original, extremely modern architecture, and a luxurious shopping mall in the shape of a nomadic tent with an artificial beach on the top floor. Kazakhstan might not be the first country on your list to teach and live, but you will be immediately impressed by its beauty and happy people.
