Today at the press conference on the development of tourism within the framework of the 8th direction of the President's Address, the Minister of Culture and Sports Arystanbek Mukhamediuly noted that at the end of the first nine months of 2017, the number of visitors to domestic tourism increased by 25% to 3.5 million people.

As the minister noted, Kazakhstan has unique natural landscapes and numerous historical places, such as Ulytau, sacred places of East and West Kazakhstan, Altai.

"This list can be continued, each place in Kazakhstan is unique and connected with history. We are obliged to show the whole world these places," said Arystanbek Mukhamediuly, answering the question about the top 10 amazing places in Kazakhstan.

Also, the Minister noted that to date, to stimulate the development of tourism in Kazakhstan, popular science and animation films about historical places of Kazakhstan are being shot.

Dana Kurmasheva, Deputy Chairman of the Tourism Industry Committee, noted that Kazakhstan is carrying out large-scale work on the development of domestic tourism within the framework of the Ruhani Zhangyru program.

According to Dana Kurmasheva, work with the regions is built on a cluster basis. The Concept of the development of the tourist industry was adopted until 2023, where the cluster principle was clearly defined.

It is noted that the value of the cluster system lies in the fact that it contributes to the specialization and active economic development of a certain region.

"Since last year we have been working with the regions on a regular basis, we have developed a plan of events. At the level of akims of the regions, systematic work is carried out on infrastructural development, joint packages for the promotion of tourist products in the regions are being formed," deputy chairman of the Tourism Industry Committee said.

As noted by Dana Kurmasheva, the South Kazakhstan cluster, represented as the epicenter of the Great Silk Road, is especially active. In the region, work is purposefully done to create a tourist cluster and there is very close synergy between all the facilities.
