Astana, (formerly known as Akmola until 1998, Tselinograd until 1992 and Akmolinsk until 1961), has been the capital of Kazakhstan since 1997, and is the country's second largest city (after Almaty, the former capital) with an officially estimated population of 780 000 as of February 14, 2013. It is located in the north portion of Kazakhstan, within Akmola Province, though administrated separately from the province as a federal city area.
The current mayor of Astana is Imangali Tasmagambetov. He was appointed on 4 April 2008.
The 2015 International Olympiad in Informatics will be held in Astana.
