The Medeu is an outdoor skating rink on the outskirts of Almaty, the largest city in the Central Asian republic of Kazakhstan.  The Zailiyskiy Alatau mountains in which the Medeu sits are some of the most amazing to be found in the entire region.   Contributor Azugla San used a drone to create a stunning video of the area and the skating rink, which is believed to be the largest in the world.  Almaty was the initial capital of Kazakhstan when the county became independent of the USSR in the early 1990's.

The Ural River is the third longest river in Europe, after the Volga and the Danube.  It rises in the Ural Mountains in Russia, then passes through a portion of western Kazakhstan before discharging into the great Caspian Sea.  It's an immensely important natural resource to Kazakhstan, much of which is covered by desert.  In this drone video by contributor sekl, you'll get a bird's eye view of the great waterway as it meanders its way through Kazakhstan, the world's largest landlocked country.
