The training center for professional sportsmen has no analogues in the CIS countries.

During the working trip to Shchuchinsk-Borovoye resort area today July 11, 2018, President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev told about the necessity of Kazakhstani tourism development, BNews.kz correspondent reports.  

The laying of infrastructure to all touristic objects of Kazakhstan was also mentioned by the President.

It is vital to develop ski center in Almaty region. We have all the components of this: potential, projects, and ideas. Few Kazakhstanis know that Charynsky Canyon is bigger than Great Canyon in Northern America. By the way, the foreigners agree with this fact. Tourists get memorable experience from visiting the Charynsky Canyon. And therefore, a heavy boost should be given to its development.

"As you know I had visited Alakol which is a unique resort area along with Balkhash coast. Auto-road and railway were built in Alakol. A swimming season at Alakol sea, (Alakol Lake is meant) is 95 days a year. Which resort area does operate in a similar mode? Even Turkish one cannot compete,” Nursultan Nazarbayev announced.
