This has to be one of the largest square I've ever been to. The center monument is impressive. It is so big that it actually took us 10 minutes just to reach the crosslane of the 12 lanes boulevard in order to reach the Palace of Reconciliation.

The exact use of this building is not clear, but it has a remarkable architecture. Smooth escalators bring you to a quite large painting exhibition. The works are modern, and very locally inspired. I found several of them really stunning. Photography seems to be allowed. There are little explanations concerning the exposition, and no catalogue or shop. Ideall for a calm one hour visit to learn more on Kazakhstan via paintings.

This is a fantastic square!! So many amazing buildings in one place. You will come home with 30 (almost identical) pictures of this place.
