A Portrait of Astana


Nur-Sultan (formerly Astana) is the capital and second largest city of Kazakhstan, the Central Asian republic.  Since the capital was moved from Almaty in the late 1990's, Nur-Sultan has been more or less completely remade with new construction.  Contributor and pilot Dronex.pro created this amazing drone video of the gleaming city.  At the :30 mark is a climb sequence in which you'll see the top of the 2012 vintage, 64 story Emerald Towers I building: at 240 meters (about 780 ft.), it's one of the tallest buildings in Central Asia.
