A park with yurts, altybakan and kazakh cuisine opened in Atyrau

In Atyrau, along the highway of the village of Erkinkala, the Nurly Tal ethnopark was launched, built on the enthusiasm of a local entrepreneur Gulzhan Kuzekesheva, ATPress.kz reports.

So far, the only ethnic-style park to date is already accepting its guests. This is a place where everyone, regardless of age, will find entertainment to their liking. In the park, you can not only plunge into the national life, but also relax in comfort: play national games, ride the altybakan, admire the products of local artisans, take part in various cultural events, and also have a bite to eat in the restaurant with the ancient name "Uyshik", where you can taste dishes from the times of Uyshik (the ancient name of the city of Atyrau - Author's note), Guryev, as well as modern cuisine.

- We divided each day into different topics. For example, on Tuesday we hold environmental events aimed at preventing environmental pollution. On Wednesdays, all our programs are dedicated to children. On Thursdays, a fair of Kazakh goods will be held. On Fridays our doors are open to everyone, especially grandparents. It is for them that we will prepare competitions and concert numbers. Saturday is a family day, Sunday is a youth day, - says the director of the ethnopark Gulzhan Kuzekesheva.

Soon, boutiques will also open on the territory, where local artisans can sell their goods. In addition, the management plans to organize an exhibition of farm animals.

- Negotiations are underway with local entrepreneurs. We provide support to young and novice craftsmen, they can take part in fairs. In general, the idea to open the park came five years ago. I announced my initiative to the akim of the region, who supported me. The Akimat allocated 2 hectares of land near the highway of the village of Erkinkala. The project itself cost 280 million tenge, - says the director of the park.
