Review

Almaty is a sunny, cozy green city with wide streets, beautiful buildings, numerous parks, squares and fountains. It is no coincidence that the most beautiful city at the foot of the emerald ridges of the Tien Shan is called the "garden city".
Almaty has a large number of attractions that attract visitors to the city and delight the beauty of local residents. One of these attractions is the Shymbulak ski resort, which is very popular.
