Car rental to travel around Kazakhstan

Car rental to travel around Kazakhstan

06.04.2016
Traveling around Kazakhstan by rental car. This is a small but incredibly beautiful country. Make sure to visit local steppes to enjoy the unique beauty of Kazakhstan. Also, there are plenty of ancient museums and famous buildings.

Perhaps, this is the flattest country in the world. However, there are steppes and deserts.

Car rental

We rented a car in Chelyabinsk. To rent a good car, you just have to:

  • present passport and driver's licence;
  • pay a deposit.

We didn't notice any changes in rules while crossing the border between two countries. However, there are some differences in speed limits in the urban residential area (20kmph).

We started driving in the morning, passed Troitsk, and reached local steppes. There was a 'battle for the harvest'. Then we drove to Kostanay. There is a monument of conquerors of the land and a memorial locomotive. Also, there are an unusual water tower, a beautiful regional theater, and a male college.

Then we drove among steppes to Aktobe. All these steppe roads are monotonous but beautiful.

In Aktobe, there is a very unusual Rukhin museum. It includes an outstanding collection of exhibits related to traditions of the world religions. In general, the city is modern and elegant, especially at night.

We also drove to the Aral Sea. We noticed how the grassy steppe became a desert. A tragedy of the sea's shrinkage is still unknown. It's very sad to walk and drive on places that were the seabed.

We drove to Kyzylorda along the Syr Darya. This is the southernmost point of our route. The road goes on clay and sandy desert, and there are completely different landscapes.

Kyzylorda is known for the Aytbaya mosque and a monument of Korkyt Ata.

After a long journey through the deserted plains, we reached the capital of Kazakhstan, Astana. The plains give way to small mountain ranges.

Astana is a young city with an impressive modern architecture. There are Nur-Astana Mosque, the presidential residence, the Palace of Peace and Concord, a city library, a railway station, and the Khan Shatyr shopping center. Make sure to visit the Aquarium among arid steppes.

Also, we visited Kokchetau and Kostanay. Then we came back to Chelyabinsk to return our rental car.
