Астана Павлодар

Астана - новое имя новой столицы Казахстана. Прежнее же название города - Акмола (ранее Акмолинск).

Есть несколько версий происхождения этого названия. Первая гласит, что город Акмола был назван в честь холма из известняка белого цвета. Вторая версия принадлежит византийскому автору Прокопиусу. Он писал в своих трудах, что гунны называли «мола» высокий холм или крепость. И третий вариант: Акмола всегда была главным центром ярмарок рогатого скота, известной изобилием и разнообразием мясомолочных продуктов (кумыс, айран, курт, шубат и т.д.). Следовательно, название города переводится как «белое святое место» или «белое изобилие».

В Казахской Советской энциклопедии написано, что «Акмола – это сооружение из белого камня, над четырехугольными стенами которого воздвигнут купол, напоминающий верхнюю часть юрты или половинку шара. Сверкающий на солнце купол был виден издалека, что и придавало особую красоту берегам реки Есиль». Поэтому название Акмола и стало названием этого края.

Cтепи Акмолы издревле были местом, где встречались различные культуры и цивилизации. В середине первого тысячелетия до н.э историк Геродот упоминал маршрут через Большую Степь (позже Великий Шелковый Путь), который пролегал именно здесь. Караванные пути способствовали расцвету торговли и кустарного промысла в городах, традиционно занятых животноводством и сельским хозяйством.
