One of such constructions is the Palace of Peace and Reconciliation built in 2006 in Astana. Official news of Astana in literal sense dazzled with various photos of this construction. The international architects invited for construction of the palace chose really unusual form for future building – a pyramid. For this reason today many guests of Astana carry the building of the palace to one of Wonders of the world.
Architectural features of the palace
The tourists giving preference to unusual architectural constructions can safely order last-minute travel offers independently to admire this miracle of an architectural thought. Each element of this palace in literal sense blows the mind:
