Arbat, Almaty Reviews
That is amazing place for everyone just chill out or strolling with friends. There you always can find good live acoustic songs from local people. Sometimes there is an open microphone where everyone can perform some songs. Lots of не boothes with ice-creams and right near the main street there is a big supermarket called 'Magnum'. This is my favorite place in Almaty
Arbat promenade lane is very historical and memorable for local people. And it's a great initiative of a local municipality to extend the path longer and up to the opera house. This new Arbat is all lit up, nicely decorated, user-friendly and pedestrian-friendly. It also provides areas to keep fit both for adults and children. Besides this, it's also got a small but hopefully growing selection of cafes and restaurants. Nice area to have a walk or set a photo session.
Arbat is most beautiful place in Almaty . Thanks from Mr Baibek the Governor Of Almaty city .
Nice place to walk around. Lots of youth, live music and friendly atmosphere.
Pedestrian zones (also known as auto-free zonesand car-free zones, and as pedestrian precincts in British English) are areas of a city or town reserved for pedestrian-only use and in which most or all automobile traffic may be prohibited. Converting a street or an area to pedestrian-only use is called pedestrianisation. Pedestrianisation usually aims to provide better accessibility and mobility for pedestrians, to enhance the volume of shopping and other business activity in the area and/or to improve the attractiveness of the local environment in terms of aesthetics, air pollution, noise and crash involving motor vehicle with pedestrians. However, pedestrianisation can sometimes lead to reductions in business activity, property devaluation, and displacement of economic activity to other areas. In some cases traffic in surrounding areas may increase, due to displacement rather than substitution of car traffic.
