Almaty is located in the southeast of Kazakhstan. Its population is 1.5 million. Although it has lost the status of capital, Almaty remains the largest financial, economic and cultural center of Central Asia.
Almaty was the capital of Kazakhstan from 1929 to 1998. It is one of the most beautiful cities in Kazakhstan with a population of 1,200,000, situated in the foothills of the Zailisky Alatau Mountains. In the medieval era it was the Almatu locality, in 1854 the Zailiiskoe fortress, and from 1921 to 1993, Alma-Ata. After the Decree of the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan of October 20, 1997 "On the declaration of Akmola the capital of the RK" Almaty recieved the status of city of National importance and became the southern capital of the country, the largest national financial, scientific and cultural center. The Residence of the Head of State and Government remains here. Branches of food and light industries dominate the economy of the city and produce over 70% of products of industrial enterprise. Some machine-building and mechanical factories represent the heavy industry of Almaty.
In 1963, the settlement of Aktau received town status. The city is a major oil and gas production center, and is known for its unique heated oil pipeline. The population of Aktau is around 175,000.

The only nuclear power station in the country was built not far from Aktau, which also famously powers the city's desalination plant.
