An overly realistic decoration
This place was built as a decoration for the film “Nomad”, which was released in 2005. But you will be surprised by how organically it fits into the surrounding landscape. Now this city is often called the “Nomad Fortress”, and thousands of tourists flock to this tourist site every year. It is located on the banks of the Ili River, just 30 km from Kapchagai.
Life inside the fortress
The complex includes several types of unique buildings made in the style of the XVIII century: these are towers and fortress walls, residential quarters and an “ancient” mosque with minarets … There is an ethnographic camp on the territory of the fortress, thematic events are periodically held, workshops are arranged, many photoshoots take place here.
