Ascension Cathedral, Almaty, Kazakhstan

Visiting the Ascension Cathedral and the 28 Panfilov's Men Park around it is one of the imminent excursions that you will be offered while planning a tour to Almaty. The park is conveniently located in the city center, on the so called Golden Mile. It is equally popular among the Almaty citizens and foreigners. Walking along the neat paths in the park, you will arrive to its center, and a view of a beautiful church would open to your eyes.
