Aiyrtau mountains in Kokshetau park.

Trip to Aiyrtau mountains from Kokshetau.

“Geography, the only one of all sciences, arose from action and, moreover, courageous action ... Like other sciences, geography made its way to the truth through a whole series of errors and errors ... Is modern chemistry our key science - did not go through its shameful phase of alchemy (monstrously developed fraud), and did our knowledge of the starry world not come from the superstitious idealism of astrology, which sought human destiny in the depths of infinity? From this point of view, geography can be called the most flawless of sciences. Even while fiction, she never tried to fool ordinary mortals (and their overwhelming majority), to lure money from them, to deprive them of peace”
