I am moving to Astana next year to work for a German institution. I would like to know a little bit about the city beforehand, so hopefully someone can give me some feedback on these specific questions: What would be the approximate rent cost for a 50 square meter apartment in the city? Are there indoor tennis courts? Is there a library or a book shop (English) to hang out on the weekend and have a coffee? Anybody experience with private tutors in Russian language (price, school/private etc.)?
