Bayterek Tower

The symbol of the great past, promising present, and a wonderful bright future of Kazakhstan.

"Everyone who climbs the Bayterek Tower, will learn the essense of the steppe" - this is how the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan described the magnificent structure in the very center of our huge country. Undoubtedly, the tower is the landmark of Nur-Sultan. "Bayterek" in Kazakh means "High poplar tree". Its architectural design is inspired by an ancient Turkic myth about a tree of life and a sacred bird: every year the bird, named Samruk, lays its egg (the Sun) in the crevice between the branches of the poplar tree. 

Bayterek is considered a symbol of modern Kazakhstan. Having visited this unique tower, you will never be able to forget the indescribable atmosphere of this place.
