The interior of Bayterek tower in the centre of Astana, the new capital city. The tower embodies a legend of a magic bird called Samruk that laid its eggs in the canopy of a high poplar tree. After climbing to the top of the tower, visitors are encouraged to put their hands into a golden imprint of the hand of President Nursultan Nazarbayev and make a wish.
