01The Palace of Peace and Reconciliation

In Kazakhstan’s capital city Nur-Sultan, you will see the city’s new highlight: The Palace of Peace and Reconciliation. This beautiful modern pyramid opened in 2006 as the home of the triennial Congress of World and Traditional Religions. The glass-and-steel building features a 1,350-seat opera hall, an impressive atrium, and a conference hall with stained-glass windows displaying doves. You can take a 30-minute guided tour to see the interior of this spectacular pyramid. But its exterior is best viewed at night when beautifully illuminated.
