Kazakhstan ISD Calling code is +7
The flag of Kazakhstan, which was adopted after the collapse of the Soviet Union and the proclamation of independence in 1992, consists of pale blue leaf with yellow ornament in the middle. The ornament is composed of silhouette of a steppe eagle (also known as “Berkut”), which carries on its wings a sun with thirty-two sun rays. Moreover, there is a yellow vertical stripe made of traditional national pattern. The azure blue color was characteristics to the original flag and it is a traditional color of the nomadic peoples of Central Asia. The very first national flag was adopted in 1937 and it bore two yellow inscriptions (in Kazakh and Russian). Later, during the Soviet rule, a blue stripe and a yellow hammer and sickle were added.
Unexplored by many, Kazakhstan is a curious yet little-known land of vast plains, mountainous horizons and beautiful culture. Bordering Russia in Central Asia, it’s truly massive in size – this is, after all, ranked as the world’s ninth biggest country. It’s also the most economically successful of those countries surrounding it, known fondly as the ‘stans’. This is largely thanks to oil reserves, as well as other natural resources. The upshot? You can expect more modern, higher-quality hotels, restaurants and travel options compared to some of the country’s poorer neighbours.
South Kazakhstan is a focus of Central Asian history, featuring many famous monuments. It is a scenically diverse region where the snow-capped peaks, lakes and glaciers of the Tian Shan range give way to steppe and desert. The desert is home to the Singing Barkhan – a sand dune 3.2km (2 miles) long, which, as it crumbles, produces a peculiar singing sound.
