Short information on the town of Kyzylorda.

The town of Kyzylorda on the Syr Darya has glorious past and, thanks to the recent discovery of the nearby Kumkol oil fields, a future as well. The present, however, is a sort of time limbo between the two, and does not necessarily invite the traveller to stay for long.
Like all the newly emerging oil towns in Kazakhstan, Kyzylorda catches your attention by its extreme contradictions. On one side, there is poverty, decay, dirt and resignation; on the other, the swanky shops and homes of the oil-industry beneficiaries are impossible to miss. How should you answer the city's residents when they ask whether you like their dutiful town? Nevertheless, tourism does exist here - the treasures of the region's history fit well with modern Kazakhstan's conscious attempt to embrace its heritage and traditions.
History tells us that this was the strategic point where the caravan routes from Tashkent, Bukhara and Khiva came together, and then split to journey to western Siberia and via Torgay to Troitsk and Orenburg. There was once a large caravanserai here, on the banks of the then still powerful Syr Darya River. In 1817, the fortress of Akmechet (White Mosque) was founded on the left bank of the Syr Darya.
A year later it was decided to move the fortress to the right bank of the river, since it was more secure against the extensive floods of early summer. The Russian governorate was established in 1867, shortly after Russia's wide-ranging conquest of the Central Asian steppe, and Akmechet was renamed Perovsk, in honour of the Russian general Perov, who had excelled in his campaign against the Khans of Kokand and Khiva during the territory's conquest.
Reminders of those days are the Russian Orthodox church not far from the bazaar, built in 1878 and now beautifully restored, surrounded by high trees and flowerbeds, and the numerous one-storey Russian houses in the settlement behind it- Following the October Revolution, the city was renamed Kyzylorda (Red Horde), and wa the capital of Kazakhstan from 1925 until 1929.
