As I mentioned in my first post on Kazakhstan I had a chance to use the Metro in Almaty. I was very impressed - clean and efficient with trains arriving every 10-15 mins. Air conditioned as well, a bonus in the long, hot summers.
The Almaty Metro was opened on 1 December 2011, after more than 23 years of construction. It is only 11.3km in length but a joy to travel on with each station beautifully adorned with murals.
The metro system became the second metro in Central Asia, after the Tashkent Metro in Uzbekistan, which I visited later in the tour.
If you would like to learn a little more about these attractive stations and admire some fabulous photos of them, check out Nicole's blog on the bookmark below.
As I toured the Almaty Metro Stations, I recalled visiting the the Moscow Metro way back in 2006 - the most famous and fabulous stations of them all - tune in for a post tomorrow.
