The modern capital of Kazakhstan had undergone several renaming. Akmola city renamed for Astana ("Astana" - capital city") and announced as a new capital of Kazakhstan in 1997 under the program of city development due to fast developing favorable economic conditions.
Later the city was renamed in 2019 after the first President of Kazakhstan Nur-Sultan Nazarbayev, who brought an incredible contribution to the country flourishing and world recognition and personal involvement into developing the new capital. Shortly after the administrative reforms in 1999 UNESCO titled Astana (now Nur-Sultan) as the City of Peace.
Due to quite harsh and windy weather, Nur-Sultal is usually called as the north capital.
