While preparing a tour of Almaty, be sure to ask your tour guide to take a ride in metro. You will taste a flavour of real life of citizens and may be distracted from the buzz of the "upper world".

The metro is decorated, inter alia, with pictures and symbols of independent Kazakhstan, including its first President, Nursultan Nazarbayev, who contributed a lot of effort and personal attention to the construction.
