Almaty is a beautiful diamond in the foothills of Alatau mountains, in the south east of Kazakhstan. Not the capital anymore, Almaty is nonetheless the biggest city of Kazakhstan, the largest financial, economic and cultural center of the whole Central Asian region. Celebrated Oporto apples which were cultivated at the foothills of the Alatau gave name to the city ("alma" is the Kazakh for "apple"). Almaty is unique in its location as well as its cultural atmosphere. It is a home to distinctive nomadic tradition, specific character of Soviet culture and modern European glamour.
