II. Reading and Speaking
Read the text and be ready to tell your classmates everything you know about Astana.
Astana (the former Akmola) was founded in 1830 as a fortification of Russian Empire. In 1862 stanitsa Akmola got the status of a town. In the course of time Akmola became the centre of trade fairs where merchants from all over Kazakhstan, Russia, Central Asia, India and other countries gathered to sell cattle and agricultural products. For a long time Akmola was an outpost of Russian Empire seeking the way to develop trade and its political influence upon Central Asia in XVIII-XIX centuries. With the growth of anti-tsarist and revolutionary public mood the Akmola prison became overcrowded with those who wanted freedom. In March 1917 the Soviet Power was established in Akmola.
Many changes have taken place since then. Akmola played an important role in supplying the Soviet Army with raw material 10
and products during the Second World War. In 1961 Akmola was renamed intoTselinograd and became the centre ofTselinny Krai. In 1992 the city got its name Akmola again and since October 1997 Akmola has become a new capital of Kazakhstan. Later on it got its present name Astana. Astana is a modern growing, political, financial, economic, scientific and socio-cultural centre of the state. There are a lot of magnificent beautiful buildings, higher educational establishments, colleges and secondary schools, hotels, banks and other commercial structures in.

.the Astana Summit was attended by 73 official delegations from all participating states and partners.
