Constructed over the ruins of a former Tatar fortress, the walls of Kazan Kremlin enclose a vast space filled with parks, museums, and religious buildings, collectively designated as a World Heritage Site. The complex notably includes a 16th-century cathedral, one of few Russian churches featuring six piers and five apses. Other highlights include a 19th-century palace, now serving as the official residence of the president of Tatarstan, and a lavishly decorated mosque famous for its observation balcony and lotus-shaped dome. Be sure to visit the mosque's ground-floor museum, established to provide a glimpse into the region's Islamic history and culture.

Mosque and Orthodox cathedral. A magnificent view of the river and the city.
Запаситесь терпением и теплыми вещами, если собираетесь посетить эту основную (и чуть ли не единственную) достопримечательность в холодное время года. Ветры здесь знатные, но и вид на город открываетс... more »Be patient and warm if you are going to visit this main (and almost the only) attraction in the cold season. The winds here are notable, but the view of the city is excellent. Weigh your need to see beauty and the opportunity not to freeze.
Very beautiful and well maintained. There is the blue mosque, a church and a tower with fascinating stories (don't know how true tho). Was on a guided tour and wish could spend more time here.
It is the most beautiful structure in Kazan. Audio guide can help you understand every information about its past. Everyone should visit twice. First visit during day and second visit at night.
