History tells us that the Soviet Union wound up operations in 1991, but today, much of the same vast geographical area has us know that the people who live here still maintain close cultural and economic ties. Kazakhstan, as our website is proud to say, is a multi-ethnic republic in which over 150 peoples live together in harmony, respecting each other's ideals and customs.
