The Republic of Kazakhstan, located in the heart of Eurasia, appeared on the geopolitical map only in 1991. The word of Turkic origin “Kazakh” means “free man”, and Kazakhstan is a country that has historically been inhabited by freedom-loving nomads.
For millennia, residents have bred and grazed numerous herds in the pastures and fertile lands of the region, in the foothills and river valleys. The Great Silk Road passed through the Kazakh lands, sable fur was brought from Siberia through the endless Kazakh steppes. Kazakhstan was the most important link in the chain of cultural, trade and economic relations between Asia and Europe.
Homeland of many nations
Kazakhstan has become a homeland for people of different nationalities and religions, united by a common historical fate. This diversity of traditions, spiritual heritage and languages is especially valued in the Republic of Kazakhstan, because the Japanese proverb says for a reason: "A person can survive without his relatives, but cannot survive without neighbors."
Citizens of Kazakhstan are proud of their multinational state. Over the centuries, from generation to generation in Kazakhstan, a good tradition of friendship and good relations between peoples has been transmitted and maintained.
Currently, representatives of about 130 nationalities live in Kazakhstan, of which 66% are Kazakhs, 21% are Russians, and the remaining 13% are Ukrainians, Uzbeks, Uighurs, Koreans, Germans, and Tatars. Religions prevailing in the Republic are Islam and Christianity.
The state language in the Republic of Kazakhstan is Kazakh, the Russian language has the status of the language of interethnic communication and is used on a par with the state language in government institutions, government bodies and other organizations. And the younger generation speaks three languages, including English. The Kazakh language is the language of the ancestors, Russian is the language of communication, and English is developing and becoming popular due to the fact that it is often used in the business world when communicating with foreign guests of the country.

The capital of Kazakhstan is Nur Sultan, a city founded in 1830 as a fortress. Nur Sultan was proclaimed the capital in 1997. It is a young, but rapidly developing and modern city, full of bright prospects, great opportunities and brilliant ideas.
