Things to do
The Perfect Day

Morning

If you are visiting Almaty, you shouldn't miss out on the opportunity to visit our beautiful mountains. At a distance of 25 km from the city and at 2 260 m above the sea level you will find Shymbulak ski resort. Heavy snowfall and majestic mountains make Shymbulak the perfect place for skiers and snowboarders of all abilities. Sky season noramlly begins in December and can run into April. You can check the visibility through their webcam on www.shymbulak.com. Shymbulak is a place to relax, not only in winter, but also in summer. Shymbulak Ski Resort and Medeu ice skating rink are great prospects and favorite places for recreation and entertainment for Almaty residents and tourists.

Afternoon

The afternoon is the best time to visit Panfilov Park. The memorial in the park is in memory of the 28 soldiers of an Almaty infantry unit, who died fighting the Nazis outside Moscow. In front of the giant black monument you can watch an eternal flame, honouring the fallen of 1917–20 (the Civil War) and 1941–45 (WWII). At its heart stands candy coloured Zenkov Cathedral, an orthodox wooden church, where divine worships are conducted every day at 16:00. After pleasant walk in the park, make sure you get to the Green Bazaar, which is a great place to feel the real atmosphere of central Asia and to get involved with a bit of “haggling” and sampling of local produce. This large, two-level market has a wide choice of goods to buy: souvenirs, nuts, vegetables, fresh and dried fruits.

Evening

Koktobe is the mountain right in the centre of the Almaty and from its summit you get the best panoramic views of the city. In the evening ride the cable car up from Satpaeva and Dotstyk. It takes just five minutes to ascend to the observation point and back-to-back costs 2000 Kazakh Tenge. There are three restaurants up here and one of them, Grill Bar, is situated just on the edge of the mountain so you can enjoy spectacular views while you eat. In addition there are several small boutiques and an art gallery to browse through, with souvenirs to buy.
