Kazakhstan might sound like something out of a comic book, but in all reality it is an area in Russia. It became a recognizable name mostly by the movie BORAT. Although the countryside is recognizable as Kazakhstan, you probably won't find the oddly comical characters that are in the movie. Instead you will meet very warm, friendly people. It can be a charming place to go, if you like learning about different cultures. Although poor economically, it is a country rich in customs. Kazakhstan, being in Russia, can be a very cold place. That being said, don't forget an extra pair of socks! If you fly with Austrian Airlines to Kazakhstan, you are sure to enjoy the change of atmosphere! Once you go to Kazakhstan, you will be charmed by it. It is almost certain that you will want to bring a little piece back with you!
