On the bank of the Ili River, on the other side of the famous rocks of Tamgaly-Tas, the “city of nomads” is located.
This medieval city was built specifically for the filming of the "Nomad" in 2004.
The film was a milestone in the national cinema: a huge budget, Hollywood stars. The scenery turned out so majestic and elegant that they also filmed here the sensational “Day Watch”.
The scenery of the medieval city impresses both adults and children - this is a real fortress with a huge gate, domes and towers. The scenery expresses the spirit of the Middle Ages and has many details.
Surrounded by rocks, the fortress is located in a picturesque place: the largest river of this region – Ili river – is nearby, and only the wind walks across the steppe.
