"Kok-Tobe" TV tower and cultural park

Multi-storey television tower and recreation park around its surroundings

The multi-storey television tower located on the Kok-tobe mountain is one of the largest on earth and the most earthquake-resistant tower in the world, capable of withstanding any earthquake. The TV tower is not a museum or tourist viewing platform, but it is essential for Almaty and all of Kazakhstan. Such a powerful structure can be observed from almost anywhere in the city.

High-speed elevators were put into operation inside the TV tower, and a bomb shelter was designed in the underground part. Near the TV tower, on the slopes of the mountain of the same name, there is a cable car where you can ride a cable car, covering about 2 kilometers of distance above the beautiful city of Almaty. There is a zoo, various attractions, a cafe, and a picturesque apple garden. The neighborhood of the Koktobe TV Tower is a great place for solitary relaxation, romantic dates or having fun with friends or family.
