1. The bank of GHOSTS
One of the stories tells us about the Bank which is located in Seifullina and Shevchenko junction. According to the word of the security staff, since September 2007 the elevator of the bank had been riding every night and switching the light. There was a voice of man coming. However there was no man.
Moreover, Security started to notice a young Asian girl on the displays at 4:00 AM, but when they tried to rewind the video, there was nobody on the screen. Sometimes instead of a died girl, security saw a burning bird. A young died girl was said, to be killed and buried under the office.
Eventually, the administration of that office invited psychics and priests, only after their actions, paranormal phenomena were ceased.
Among other stories, there is a story Baum grove’s ghost. Journalists of the magazine “Alau Kazakhstan” relates a ghost to the story happened in 1918. Bishop Pimen was shooted by Red Army in the Baum grove.
Also, Journalists remembered a mountain girl ghost (Almaarasan), who appears in order to inform people about coming danger.
3. Abandoned hospital of Veterans (Eastern front, WW II)
This hospital was built in 1940 for disabled veterans. Later, Veterans of Afghanistan were also treated there. After earthquake people left this place. However, it is said to be left not because of an earthquake. In the hospital all items belonged to people were left there in chaos. It seems that people were tried to escape something, and were in a hurry when they left the hospital. Moreover, most of the exit ways had been blocked for a long time. This tells that people were afraid of somebody or something outside. If you go there, guardsman will tell you lots of stories about this mystic place.

4. The Park of 28 Panfilov Guardsmen
The Park of 28 Panfilov Guardsmen is the most popular amusement park in Almaty. It was founded in the 70-s of the XIX century on the place of a cossack village cemetery, and originally named as Starokladbischensky Park (Old Cemetery Park). The park is a green area of 18 hectares, divided by straight paths and alleys, surrounded with mixed deciduous grove of perennial oaks, elms, aspens, maples, poplars, pines and firs.
Over the years of its existence, the park changed its name not once or twice, until 1942, when it was finally renamed in honor of Panfilov soldiers of the 1075 regiment of the 312th riffle division, who having small forces were able to blunt the German attack at the approaches to Moscow in November 1941.
This all-time favourite park keeps many secrets. People say that in the front of the Museum of National Instruments they always see a ghost of a girl in white. Also it is believed that under the Cathedral there are subways leading to China. As per the legend, fearing the Bolsheviks, church officers hid church treasures under the cathedral. This explains how an Iconostasis of the church disappeared. Also, there is a legend telling us that somewhere in the park a four-ton bell was buried. People believe that it rings before an earthquake.
