Excursions in Kazan

For some reason, the Leaning Tower of Pisa is famous all over the world, but not everyone knows about the Kazan Falling Tower. Tatarstan is very fond of this symbol of the city - the Syuyumbike tower, moreover, they consider it mysterious. And the point is not only that it is falling, but it is not possible to determine for certain the age of the building, as well as to confirm or deny several contradictory legends associated with both the tower itself and the personality of Queen Syuyumbike. And in order to better understand this, it is worth visiting excursions in Kazan - the capital of the Republic of Tatarstan.

However, in Kazan, which not so long ago turned 1000 years old, there are many other attractions. In terms of their level, Kazan does not differ much from Moscow or St. Petersburg. In addition, the city was thoroughly cleaned up for its anniversary. Many historical buildings, as well as architectural monuments, have been ennobled or restored. Along with this, new structures were built. For residents and guests of the city, shopping and cultural and entertainment centers have opened their doors, and they are quite consistent with the international level. The renewed Kazan has become more beautiful, adding European features to its usual Muslim-Orthodox look. However, the Tatar capital has not lost its uniqueness.

On a fine afternoon, it is good to visit sightseeing tours in Kazan. On them you can get acquainted with a number of attractions:

  • Tower Syuyumbike.
  • Kazan Kremlin.
  • Temple of all religions.
  • National Museum of the Republic of Tatarstan.
  • Marjani Mosque.
  • Art Museum.
  • Millennium bridge.
  • Bulgar Mosque.
  • Peter and Paul Cathedral.
  • Musa Jalil Museum.
  • Tukay Museum.
  • Boratynsky Museum.
  • Saydashev Museum.

In the capital of Tatarstan, the buildings of the historical center, as well as the Old Tatar settlement, which are of architectural value, are relatively well preserved. In these places you can see old merchant mansions. Apartment houses belonging to the 18th – 19th centuries are attractive. This is legendary «Shamil's house», as well as the House of Kekin and Mikhlyaev, Solomin-Smolin and Usmanov. There are other, no less interesting old buildings. And for the anniversary of the capital, many objects of the cultural and historical environment were reconstructed and recreated. A striking example is the Kul-Sharif Mosque, located on the territory of the Kazan Kremlin..

Bauman street

Separately, it should be said about «Kazansky Arbat». This is how Bauman Street is called here, where many unusual sculptures are concentrated, next to which tourists are usually photographed. One of these masterpieces is a monument to the legendary cat Alabrys, whose descendants are still considered to be the mustachioed and fluffy keepers of the relics of the St. Petersburg Hermitage. In fact, there was not one cat, but as many as 30, and they were discharged from Kazan to St. Petersburg by Elizaveta Petrovna. This happened after the empress visited Kazan and drew attention to the absence of mice in it..
