“Interesting and informative tour!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014

Spent a lovely afternoon here. Very beautiful building. We thought it might be closed until we were right up to the front door, so don't give up and turn away if it doesn't look open! Very friendly tour guide with great English (and a few other languages!) and a very informative tour. There is a theatre inside and we were fortunate enough to see some rehearsals while we were there! Definitely recommend a visit here.

“Don't forget the city replica”
5 of 5 bubbles 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”
4 of 5 bubbles 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”
3 of 5 bubbles 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”
5 of 5 bubbles 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.
