Well, it's on my list as well..;)
Altough not because of this structure only, it seems like a nice place to spend several days, after a 2 day traintrip across the steppe :)

Hey guys,
Yeah, the architecture and especially pace of building is really impressive. But there is a REASON why many Kazakhs had to forced going to work up there: it's bloody cold most of the time and you certainly don't need a couple of days to see everything - more like one hour in a (hopefully heated) car...
Have fun, Angelika
