Trip Planner: Asia / Kazakhstan / Akmola Province / Astana / Bayterek Tower
Bayterek, is a monument and observation tower in Astana, the capital city of Kazakhstan. A tourist attraction popular with foreign visitors and native Kazakhs alike, it is emblematic of the city, which became capital of the country in 1997.
The monument is meant to embody a folktale about a mythical tree of life and a magic bird of happiness: the bird, named Samruk, had laid its egg in the crevice between two branches of a poplar tree.
The 105 m tall structure rises from a wide flat base within a raised plaza. It consists of a narrow cylindrical shaft, surrounded by white branch-like girders that flare out near the top, supporting a gold-mirrored 22 m diameter sphere. The base contains a ticket booth and exhibition space, with two lifts rising within the shaft to the observation deck within the 'egg'. Entrances to the monument are sunk below eye level, reached by stairs from the surrounding plaza. (It's somewhat similar to the 1982 World's Fair Sunsphere in Knoxville, TN, USA.(266 ft. Tall)(2006 Use our Astana attractions planner to add Bayterek Tower and other attractions to your Astana vacation plans.

This monument is one of the main attractions of Astana. I love the symbolism of the monument (The Life tree) as it represents the vision of the country and its projection for a bright future. The view at the top of the monument is breathtaking, I went there during the sunset and it was really amazing.
Tower tourist attraction in the centre of the Nur Sultan, which you can ascend to view the city. Small queue to get in but once you're in we spent about 30 minutes in there. There are 3 levels once at the top, with stairs to each. You can have a professional photo taken at the top, including the view. There is a small cafe selling drinks & snacks. Once you're at the top in the ball, the view out is slightly impared by the yellow hew & the dirtiness of the glass, making it tough to get a good picture. The tower is situated in a nice park though, so worth a visit & best to walk. Cost to go up is 1500 Tenge for an adult, 700 for a child.
