The centre has a huge indoor leisure park, designed to be protected from the region’s harsh climate. Inside, visitors will find shops, restaurants and cinemas – even an artificial beach and a running track.

    The place has just opened; one of the few press photos is the one below. Couldn’t find any real interior pics yet.

    Wow that’s pretty cool. You never hear much about Kazakhstan. It’s nice to see some good press about that mysterious country. I had a friend from there who looked totally Korean, is Muslim, dressed in anything tight with lot’s of spandex, loved all things hip hop and American, drank lots of vodka and spoke loudly :) Quite a character! Very fun loving and loyal.
