Today the famous opera singer Placido Domingo with his family, accompanied by Kazakhstan’s Minister of Culture and Sport Arystanbek Mukhamediuly, visited the EXPO exhibition.

The exhibition began at the pavilion of Kazakhstan. Placido Domingo wrote warm wishes in the book of honorable guests. In "Nur Alem" he drew attention to the section "Kazakhstan Hospitality", where he briefly acquainted himself with our traditions such as "Qonaq asy", "Auyz tiu", "Qonaq kade", "At mingizip, shapan zhabu”, Sarqyt". Admired by the breadth of Kazakh nature and its traditions, the guest could only say "fantastic".

“It is my second time in Astana. I witnessed the hospitality of Kazakh people when I was here for the first time. After visiting the pavilion "Nur Alem", I seem to have begun to understand the broad character of the Kazakh nation, its secret. I can not convey in words the impressions received from EXPO. It's like a different world or future. I attended many exhibitions, gave concerts. But this EXPO is special, "says Placido Domingo.

Before leaving the pavilion "Nur Alem", he threw a coin in the fountain and made a wish. He also said that his grandson liked the glass floor.

Placido Domingo also visited the pavilions of Austria, Germany, and Spain.
