This cathedral was built without a single nail of wooden slabs and is considered the second tallest building in the world, built of wood. It was the only building that survived the earthquakes of 1887 and 1910. In addition, the first radio transmitters in Almaty were located on the bell tower of the cathedral;

The central mosque of Almaty is one of the largest and most beautiful magnificent mosques in Kazakhstan. The authors of the project were S. Baimagambetov, Sh. Sharapov and K. Zharylgapov; It was built in the style of Timurid architecture. The mosque looks ancient, with its Turkish calligraphy, domes and minarets, but was completed only in 1999. Inside, the mosque is designed with luxury, but in such a way that the interior seems quite simple, and this combination of rich decoration and religious simplicity creates a harmonious image of the mosque, from which no one wants to leave.
Hotel Kazakhstan was built in 1975-1977 by the project of architects Yu.G. Town Hall, L.L. Ukhobotova. This is the second tallest building in the city of Almaty, Kazakhstan. It is 102 m (335 feet) tall, with 26 floors. It is located in the southern center of Almaty and is located on Dostyk Avenue, the main road in the eastern part of the city, which runs from Medeo to Panfilov Park in the northern part of the city. This is a triumph for 20th century design and engineering. The architectural individualism of the hotel combines the achievements of modern civilization and the traditional hospitality of the Kazakh people. It was the first high-rise building built using earthquake-resistance technology.
Independence Monument is located on the Republic Square, one of the main squares of Almaty. The monument is dedicated to the rich history of the Republic of Kazakhstan from the time of Queen Tomiris to the present day. Its architects were a group of Kazakh architects led by Shota Valikhanov. The statue of the Golden Warrior and the barys stands on top of a 91-foot-high column (28 m).
The Golden Warrior is a rich example of a historical artifact that preceded Russian imperial rule and provides insight into the history of Kazakhstan. Also at the foot of the stele is a bronze book of wish fulfillment. On the one hand, an open book is written in Old Turkic “Choose and be happy”, and on the other hand, the imprint of the palm of the President of the country.
