Nur-Sultan - a guide to the sights.

“A poetic imagination wanders and reincarnates things, gives them their purest meaning and determines relationships that are hitherto unknown, but always, always, always wielding facts of clear and precise reality itself. It is inside human logic and is controlled by the mind, from which it cannot separate”

Federico Garcia Lorca.
