Top 10 Airbnb Vacation Rentals In Almaty, Kazakhstan - Updated 2021

airbnb Almaty, Kazakhstan

Almaty, Kazakhstan’s capital and financial hub, may be a bit of a wildcard for the novice traveller. One thinks of deserts and sandstorms, but Almaty is an urbanised metropolitan city, encircled like a snow globe by the mighty Tien Shan mountains. You can see the marks of a modern city; skyscrapers dominate the skyline, leafy, lush parks dot the cityscape, and numerous museums, as well as coffee shops, can be found. This eclectic, modern mix, along with the occasional Soviet-era mural makes Almaty a fascinating off-the-beaten-track city for the novice travelers. Over there, there is much to see and do. For the cultural lovers, there is the Abay Opera House, the Kazakhstan Museum of the Arts (where Asia’s most significant collections of Western European and Russian art is). A fun thing to do is to take a dip in the sprawling Arasan baths complex, which consists of a Finnish sauna, a Moroccan hammam, Russian banya and Turkish steam bath. The Green Bazaar, which sits on the ancient Silk Road trading route is a great place to test your bargaining skills, or you could step into the shiny Dostyk Plaza mall for high-end products. Visitors also like to make a stop at the ornate Zenkov (Ascension) Cathedral, made entirely of wood, and architecturally beautiful. Start your visit to Almaty by staying in one of our selected Airbnb vacation rentals today.
