The government of Kazakhstan has declared a one-off bridge public holiday on Monday, July 5, 2010, to link the previous weekend to this year's, July 6, annual public holiday.

As per custom in such cases (2009-12-29, 2009-12-01, 2008-04-21 and 2007-11-21), this extra non-working public holiday will be compensated by having declared Sunday, July 3, 2010, as a regular working day. Note that such bridge public holidays declarations are not systematic (2008-12-12 and 2006-08-25).

The Day of the Capital, on July 6, was declared an annual public holiday, a couple of years ago, when the plenary session of the Kazakh Senate adopted an amendment to the Kazakh law On holidays in the Republic of Kazakhstan (2008-06-23).
