Nursan Alimbay said to the Czech partners about the development of the culture and museum in Kazakhstan. Besides, he reported the details of the upcoming exhibition which will consist of two parts. The first part is on the culture of the early nomads (9BC - 3AD) and the second part is on historical ethnography of the Kazakhs. The exposition will include archaeological exhibits of the era of the ancient Sakas, Huns and Turks, including the Golden Man. The place of honour will be taken by the so-called “Scythian Triad": armaments, horse harnesses and masterpieces of the Scythian-Siberian animal style, made in gold and bronze. In the central place of the exposition, there will be represented the yurt in full decoration - the central symbol of a nomadic type of economic and cultural activity.

The primary purpose of the event that will be held at the pick of the tourist season in Prague from June to July is to familiarise the Czech public and numerous foreign visitors with the history, diversity and life of the Kazakh nomadic culture and the contribution of nomads to the development of the world's and European civilisation.

As a part of the opening of the exhibition, it is planned to organise an international scientific-practical conference "Human being, Animal, Flora in the Culture of Eurasian Nomads" with the participation of leading Kazakhstani, Czech, German, French, Hungarian, Russian, Mongolian scientists andTurkologists.

The National Museum of the Czech Republic is the oldest museum institution in the country. “A treasury of the national culture", was built in 1818 in the era of national revival and the romantic cult of “antiquities". In the summer of 2011, the central building of the National Museum was closed for the 8-year renovation. On October 28, 2018, on the 100th anniversary of the declaration of independent Czechoslovakia, the historic building of the National Museum reopened its doors for guests. The exhibition from Kazakhstan will be the first foreign exposition after the building's reconstruction.

Brazil’s version of Trump: why is it a «wake-up call» for the world?

<p style="text-align: justify;">A racist, a homophobe, a misogynist, a pro-torturer. Because of the profane outbursts and verbal abuse, he has earned such an image and was even considered as a political clown. Once he insulted lawmaker claiming that she was too ugly to be worth of raping. What is more, he said that he’d rather have a dead son than a gay one. Therefore, analysts concluded that Brazil has elected the most extremist president among democratic countries. So why did Brazil decide to make «really radical shift»? How did such an «extreme» and «unpleasant» figure become a president?<br /> </p>

In industrialized countries, one of the most important indicators of the economy is the level of development of the machine-building industry. Independent Kazakhstan, striving to achieve ambitious goals, is making great efforts to develop machine building in the process of diversifying its economy.
