VISA and MasterCard are widely accepted throughout the country in most shopping malls and restaurants. For withdrawing cash, one can turn to nearest ATMs located all around the city.

Weather

The climate in Kazakhstan is continental. You will experience a vast difference in temperatures and climate while traveling through the country.

Summers in Kazakhstan are warm with an average temperature at around 30 *C (86 *F). During winters the average temperature drops down to -20 *C (-4.0 *F).

The best time to travel is from April to October when temperatures are moderately warm, as well as the period from December to March for winter enthusiasts.

Kazakhstan is a sunny country, some regions enjoy the sun up to 330 days a year.

Local Cuisine

Kazakh traditional cuisine is based on a few main ingredients such as meat, bread/dough, and some dairy products.  Due to the challenging weather conditions and nomadic lifestyle food had to be easy to prepare, very nutritious and contain a lot of fat to provide energy.

Kazakhstan boasts its organic fruits and vegetables that are grown locally, delicious natural honey with numerous health benefits, finest caviar as well as the signature chocolate products. 

The tea culture is very prominent, Kazakhstan is believed to be among the top countries in the world for tea consumption; almost every meal is followed by tea in Kazakh families.

Apart from a regional cuisine, a wide range of restaurants is also available for tourists with a cosmopolitan appetite for Chinese, Japanese, Russian, Italian, French, Korean, South East Asian and Indian cuisine with some vegetarian options.

 

Language

The national language is Kazakh, however, the Russian language has the same status. More than 70% of Kazakh citizens speak Russian fluently thanks to the Soviet Union times. 

Kazakh language however is very different from Russian in its nature, and is not as widely practiced by the city dwellers as compared to the rural and country dwellers. Although the Russian language is more common, local people will react extremely well if you speak even a little Kazakh.

Religion in Kazakhstan

The Republic of Kazakhstan is often called the crossroads of civilizations. Since ancient times various religions were formed and developed on the territory of modern Kazakhstan. Archeologists have found here traces of Buddhism, Zoroastrianism, Nestorianism, and Tengrism. 

Today, Kazakhstan is a modern, secular state promoting ethnic and religious diversity and tolerance. A multinational country with a long history of ethnic groups living together, Kazakhstan is a peaceful country where Kazakhstani citizens of different religious backgrounds live in harmony.

The majority of the population in Kazakhstan practices Islam. The Muslim population is largely made up of the ethnic Kazakhs, Uzbeks, and Tatars. The second most practiced religion is Russian Orthodox Christianity, with the majority of adherents being ethnic Russians, Ukrainians, and Belarusians.
