Saturday marked Kazakhstan's national pavilion day at the Shanghai World Expo. A country known as the world's largest landlocked country. In the pavilion, Kazakhstan aims to showcase the best of its young and dynamic developing capital, Astana.

Performing artists welcome visitors with traditional song and dance routines with ethnic flavors of Kazakhstan.

The Kazakhstan Pavilion is located in Zone A of the Expo Park, covering an area of around one thousand square meters.

The pavilion features advanced electronic and information systems as well as virtual reproduction technologies, which provides a panoramic view of Kazakhstan, a country rich in cultural and ethnical diversity.

Raykhan Dilmagambetova, Commissioner of Kazakhstan Pavilion, said, "The Kazakhs love the falcon. Golden Eagle hunting is the traditional sport of our country. A well trained golden eagle is worth the price of a good horse. Our falcons are very strong and robust. The wingspread of a falcon is approximately two meters."
