"Karaganda's black city" Karaganda by Klod5

Karaganda Travel Guide: 8 reviews and 10 photos

Karaganda City (pop. 1995 est. : 574,000), is in central Kazakhstan.
Kazakhstan's second-largest city, it consists of the old town, which grew up haphazardly around more than 20 mining settlements, and the new town with the cultural and administrative center, which includes a university and medical and polytechnic institutes.

Karaganda from Kazakh means, "Black city" it means just it is situated on a gigantic coal hills. People here are nice. We are always glad to host people and want to have more new and faithful friends. We will be happy to host people in the hotels of highest quality and also in families at the restaurants and at families' parties.
