My first postcard from Kazakhstan, thank you Tatiana!
Kazakhstan , is a contiguous transcontinental country in Central Asia, with its smaller part west of the Ural River in Europe. Kazakhstan is the world’s largest landlocked country by land area and the ninth largest country in the world; its territory is larger than Western Europe. The terrain of Kazakhstan includes flatlands, steppe, taiga, rock canyons, hills, deltas, snow-capped mountains, and deserts. The capital is Astana, where it was moved from Almaty in 1997.
Did you know?
The largest water body inside the bounds of the country is Lake Balkhash, which is one of the biggest lakes of the world. The lake has a unique quality about it. One half of the water remains saline, whereas the other half of the lake has fresh water.
