The residence of Kazakhstan's President Akorda is the third most beautiful presidential palace in the world according to Theestle.net, Tengrinews reports. 

Akorda is the official residence and the main workplace of the President of Kazakhstan in Astana.

The construction of Akorda located on the left bank of the Ishim River kicked off in 2001. Well-known architects from Europe and Kazakhstan worked on creating this unique piece of architecture in Kazakhstan's capital to making it a symbol of the dynamically developing country. Experts from as many as ten countries were involved in the project.

The official presentation of the residence covering an area of 36,720 square meters was finally held on December 24, 2004. Before that, the building of the former regional committee of the Communist Party, located in the old center of the city, served as the presidential residence. Currently, it houses the Museum of the First President of Kazakhstan.

High-level meetings, negotiations and tête-à-tête meetings of the Kazakh President with other leaders and heads of governments as well as signing of important documents always take place in Akorda.
