On June 28 there in the hall after N. Dauletova on the eve of the 30-th anniversary of independence and the day of the Capital there is organized the book exhibition named “Nur-Sultan – bolashaktyn astanasy”.
In 1994 the President of Independent Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev offered to transfer the capital of the country from Almaty to Akmola.
This was one of the first courageous strategical steps of the independent state. The decision of the head of state was the reason for the placement of the city into the centre of Kazakhstan and Eurasian continent and gave birth to the birth of the infrastructure of different kinds of communication. On May 6, 1998 there came out the Decree of the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan about the renaming of the city of Akmola into the city of Astana. Beginning from that day there began the chronicles of the main city of Kazakhstan – Astana city. The international presentation of the new сapital took place on June 10, 1998. In 1999 Astana city took the title “The world city” by the decision of the UNESCO. From 2000 the chief city of Kazakhstan is a member of the international assembly of capital and large cities.
On March 23, 2019 there by the Decree of the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan Kasym-Zhomart Tokayev the capital of the Republic of Kazakhstan was renamed again into Nur-Sultan city.
We can name the architectural objects which appeared on the territory of Sary-Arka and became the symbols of independence of our capital. They are the monuments “Baiterek”, “Kazak Eli”, the palace of Peace and Agreement, the state opera and ballet theatre palace, the sphere “Nur Alem”, the museum of art of modern times, the Presidential cultural centre and other prominent buildings which attract the attention of the people.
During the 23 years Nur-Sultan turned into the developed city with the infra-structure and became the centre with the cultural, political, societal influence. The influence of Astana city grew, it also grew in volume and was given tremendous impact. Not only the outside appearance changed totally, the spheres of production, culture, social protection also changed completely.
The European and Oriental cultures make beautiful the modern architectural style as the economic, policy and cultural centre.
Nur-Sultan turned into the pride, the symbol, national idea and unity of the nation. The future of Kazakhstan is directly linked with the future of Nur-Sultan. Nur-Sultan is the inseparable part of the image of today’s Kazakhstan.
There at the exhibition are offered the history and future, the economic, cultural and social development aspects of the capital and also the literature and albums.
