Nur-Sultan is the capital city in Kasakhstan. This city have had many different names.
From 1998 the name is Astana, when the gouverment move from Almaty to Astana.
Nursultan Nazarbayev whas the President of Kazakhstan after the dissolution of the Soviet Union,
until he resigned in March 2019. After that, the city's name was changed to Nur-Sultan (named after the ex-president).

The city is relatively new, but is already beginning to look worn down.
