    Sights of Kazakhstan in «THE GREAT TYAN-SHAN» ADVENTURE MOTORCYCLE TOUR

    The Medeu, (Kazakh: Медеу; Medeu) or Medeo (Russian: Медео) is an outdoor speed skating and bandy rink. It is located in a mountain valley (Medeu Valley, or the valley of Malaya Alma-Atinka River) on the south-eastern outskirts of Almaty, Kazakhstan. Medeu sits 1,691 metres above sea level, making it the highest skating rink in the world.[1] It has 10.5 thousand square meters of ice and utilizes a sophisticated freezing and watering system to ensure the quality of the ice. The mountain valley was named in honor of Medeo, a wanderer who lived in the last century and established own aul in this picturesque. site.
    Construction of the stadium began in the fall of 1949, and the first competition took place at the stadium on 4 February 1951. Medeu switched to its current system of artificial ice in 1972 by a team of Soviet engineers.
    The Medeu Dam, built in the late 1960s, stands immediately south of the skating rink, protecting it – and the city of Almaty itself – from potentially devastating mud flows. Viewpoints on top of the dam provide great views of the stadium. The dam has 3 successive altitude levels. Special water reservoir allows holding about 6 million cubic meters of water. Stairs known to city inhabitants and tourists consisting of 842 steps leads to the dam. Contests on ascension along this unique stairs are regularly carried out.
    Medeu has seen many world records in all the speed skating distances from 1951 until the 1980s: 500 m, 1000 m, 1500 m, 3000 m, 5000 m, and the 10000 m. In 1972, the rink made a very successful transition from natural ice rink to artificial ice rink.
    The bandy team Dynamo Alma-Ata, won the Soviet Championships in 1977 and 1990 and the European Cup in 1978.
    After the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, the costs to uphold the arena as a top ice rink proved too expensive for the independent Republic of Kazakhstan. The last great championship event for a long time on this ice rink was held in 1988—the Men's World Speed Skating Championship—which was won by the American skater Eric Flaim.
    In the early years of the 2000s, Medeo's future status as a competition rink was uncertain. However, it was proposed as the speed skating venue both for Almaty's unsuccessful bid for the 2014 Winter Olympic Games and the successful one for the 2011 Asian Winter Games. In the end, bandy was the only sport here during the Games. Speed skating was held at Alau Ice Palace in Astana. Medeo was the main arena of the Bandy World Championship 2012.
    Several years in succession (1990–2004) the ice skating rink turned into the large concert ground where the popular international music festival "Voice of Asia” ("Azia Dauysy”) was carried out in which not only Kazakhstan performers but also variety stars from all over the world take part

The belfry was erected on September 14, 1906. The cathedral survived the 1911 earthquake with minimal damage, even though it was built without any nails, which some bishops attributed to divine intervention. 
    The inner structure of the cathedral was made in the artistic workshops of Moscow and Kiev. The iconostasis was painted by N. Khludov. After the Russian Revolution the cathedral was used to house the Central State Museum of the Kazakh Soviet Socialist Republic. From 1930 to 1940 it was used by important public organizations. The first radio transmitters in Almaty were situated in the cathedral's belfry.

    Tash-Rabat fits perfectly into the surrounding landscape. It is a rectangle measuring 35.7 x 33.7 m with several domes. The structure consists of a large central hall (in its interior preserved elements of plaster "Gancia" - baked clay and traces of paint) and 31 rooms arranged around the hall, topped domes 20 and 11 arches. In the fortress are many underground passages, there are secret exits and underground prisons (dungeon). They were used as a shelter for refugees and hermits, as a place of religious learning and a haven for trade caravans for centuries. Who built the Tash-Rabat no one knows? Construction remains a mystery. History says that it was the local ruler Mohammed Khan. But the old people say, "It was built by father and son. And when left to put the last stone of the dome, they saw a caravan approaching. The son left his job and decided to see what kind of people go. "Do not go, - said the father - let's finish the job and then go." But the son did not listen. He left and never returned. That's why Tash-Rabat still stands without a roof.
