[ KAZAKHSTAN ] Almaty-ex capital of Kazakhstan

Almaty, formerly known as Alma-Ata and Verniy, is the largest city in Kazakhstan, and was the country's capital until 1997. Despite losing its status as the capital to Astana, Almaty remains the major commercial and cultural centre of Kazakhstan, also with the biggest population. The city is located in the mountainous area of southern Kazakhstan (Wikipedia). Thanks Ainagul ^^
