Kazakhstan is one of the locations in Lara visits in Tomb Raider Legend and in the second film Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life.

It is an Eastern European nation, the 9th largest country on Earth and the largest landlocked country. A former member nation of the Eastern Bloc and the Soviet Union, Kazakhstan was a site of a number of major Soviet military and scientific projects, including hosting the Soviet Union's primary nuclear weapons testing site. It is a neighbouring country of Russia.

Tomb Raider Legend

In Tomb Raider Legend, Lara comes here following a train Amanda Evert has left during her break in at Croft Manor. Lara first explores military base and then follows Amanda, into a secret laboratory, in the level Kazakhstan - Project Carbonek.

Alister has his moment to shine by finding obscure references suggesting that more answers might be found in Kazakhstan. A secret Soviet laboratory was dedicated to investigating the paranormal early in the Cold War, and judging by how quickly and savagely the lab was shut down and covered up by the KGB, indications are that the relics they found were indeed what Lara is searching for. Only Lara isn't the only one who's learned of the site, and she braces herself for what might turn out to be a very uncomfortable reunion.
