Remoteness from the oceans and vast territory of the country influence its climate conditions; that’s why the nature of Kazakhstan impresses with its contrasts. Kazakhstan’s climate is mostly extremely continental with average temperature between -4ºC (25°F) and -19ºC (-2°F) in January, and between +19ºC (66°F) an +26ºC (+79°F) in July. In winter the temperature can fall down to -45ºC (-49°F) and in summer can rise up to +30ºC (+86°F). All 4 seasons are clearly distinguishable – frosty winter, blossoming spring, hot summer and golden autumn.
The hottest temperature has been recorded in Turkestan (South Kazakhstan) +49ºC (+102°F); and the lowest – in Atbasar town (Akmola region) -57ºC (-70°F). Interesting fact is that Nur-Sultan is acknowledged to be one of the coldest capitals in the world, after Ulaanbaatar and Reykjavik, but this fact doesn’t prevent Nur-Sultan from welcoming guests with warm-hearted hospitality.
