The North Kazakhstan Oblast occupies only 3.6% of the territory of Kazakhstan, but despite this, it is incredibly beautiful and rich in natural resources. Amazing land of wild nature. Hundreds of lakes like precious stones settled among green wide-open spaces. There are more than two thousand of them here: from small reservoirs to the lakes well-known throughout the country and different in composition – fresh and salty. Many of the lakes are known for their healing waters with a high content of mineral salts and microelements, as well as mud-cure resorts.
