“Don't forget the city replica”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

There is a replica of the city on 3rd floor. Entrance to the Palace is free but you need to pay to see the replica and wait for a guided tour but it gives you a Picture of Astana 2030

“Unique”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

The very concept of this Pyramid of Peace and Accord is special. Every few years it is the site for leaders of world religions to gather and discuss global concerns. It's everyday life is that of cultural and community center: auditorium, coffee bar, art library, very nice art gallery and school, and an excellent souvenir and art shop. This is such a unique place that it is certainly worth a visit. You may be able to join a group tour, but even if not you can see the interesting structure and enjoy the harmonization of peace and accord.

“Guides in several languages”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

It is a pretty short tour, only about 15-20 minutes from the start to top of the building. You get to see the auditorium downstairs and then start the assent to the top. The doves stain glass windows are the best feature. The attraction is cheap to go to, so might as well go.

“Nice place to visit”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

It is a very interesting and unique building. Take the tour and go to the very top. The museum is small and not that interesting but the conference room in the point is something to see. Also the plantation is very nice.

“Good place to escape the wind”
Reviewed 7 April 2014

A good place to visit if the weather is cold. Inside it's a lot bigger than it seems and the cost of 500T is cheap. You cannot look around on your own and have to have a guided tour. Our guide spoke English and the tour lasted 30 minutes. It was a good tour but brief and you were rushed through certain areas of the building. The top floor had good views and photos were permitted. It was interesting that every part has some symbolic meaning. The cafe was ok and moderately priced. Take advantage of it and the toilets as there is nothing in the vicinity.
