About Nur-Sultan

Nur-Sultan, previously named Astana (Kazakh: Astana, Russian: Астана) from 1998 to 2019, is the capital city of Kazakhstan. In March 2019, it was renamed to Nur-Sultan after the departing Kazakh president, Nursultan Nazarbayev. It stands on the banks of the Ishim River in the northern portion of Kazakhstan, within the Akmola Region, though administered separately from the region as a city with special status. A 2017 official estimate reported a population of 1,029,556 within the city limits, making it the second-largest city in the country, behind Almaty, the capital from 1991 to 1997.
