ALMATY – Rich and diverse range of social, cultural and sports activities…
British portal The Rough Guide has rated cities worth visiting in 2014. Almaty city is among top 10: “It’s no longer the capital (that title went to Astana in 1997) but Almaty remains Kazakhstan’s most alluring city. Its setting along the old Silk Road, with rippling mountains all around, is as exotic as they come. Add this to the recent economic boom, which has seen luxury brands pumping millions into new developments.” Almaty hosted The 2011 Asian Winter Games and the nearby mountain resorts (skating ring Medeo, ski resort Chymbulak) and nature beauty (lakes, canyon, sandy dunes…) draw tourists from all over the world.
Do you dream of having a unique story to tell? Of going somewhere exotic, off the beaten track? What if you could combine this adventure with all the comfort of living in a modern, cosmopolitan city? If this sounds like you – we encourage you to choose KIMEP University in Almaty, Kazakhstan as your exchange program destination!
