The approximately 14,600 km rail network is one of the most important transport systems in the country, for both freight and passenger traffic.

Tickets must be purchased prior to travel. It is not possible to buy tickets on the train.

Some international connections, e.g. the train connection to Tashkent (Uzbekistan), is z. Currently interrupted for political reasons.


The entire road network covers around 83,000 km, of which around 17,000 are of national importance.

Rental car

In all larger cities it is possible (and recommended) to rent a rental car with a driver (e.g. in front of the train stations or through a hotel). The price is a matter of negotiation.

Taxis: Even in the larger cities there are either no or very few regular taxis. It is therefore common everywhere to stop cars driving by by waving your arm. Many car drivers who want to earn extra income stop. Here, too, the price is a matter of negotiation. It is common practice for drivers to try to get foreigners a multiple of the price that locals pay.

Ship connections

The main sea ports in the country are Aktau and Bautin, which allow direct shipping connections to Iran and Azerbaijan.

Flight connections

Astana and Almaty are served by various airlines, including Lufthansa, KLM, Turkish Airlines and British Airways. Lufthansa and the Kazakh Air Astana fly from Frankfurt and Hanover to Astana and Almaty.
