"city, southeastern Kazakstan. It is situated on the left bank of the Karatal River and in the western foothills of the Dzungarian Alatau Range. It grew up on the site of Gavrilovka village, founded in the second half of the 19th century, and it developed particularly after the construction of a branch line from the Turk-Sib Railway in 1949. Food products, construction materials, and diverse light industries predominate. The city has three parks, the largest of which half encircles the city; industrial and agricultural colleges; and a medical school." From the Encyclopaedia Britannica .
