Atyrau region

Despite the fact that the regional center - the city of Atyrau, is located on the northern coast of the Caspian Sea and is divided into two half by the powerful Ural River, you cannot call it a resort, just like the region itself. But even with all this, the Atyrau region is an inexhaustible storehouse of impressions for a traveler who craves for amazing landscapes and unearthly landscapes. There are a lot of interesting sights that attract thousands of tourists all year round, and now we will tell you about them.
