The Republic of Kazakhstan is located in Central Asia. The most central of Central Asian countries, Kazakhstan has extensive land borders with Russia, Uzbekistan, China, Kyrgyzstan and Turkmenistan. Present-day Kazakhstan is the result of centuries-long emerging and fading of tribes and states in the vast steppe between the Altai and the Volga. Whoever takes an interest in Kazakh culture pays tribute to a nation which even during the hardest years offered refuge to many people.
