Create an itinerary including Kazan Kremlin
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.

  • They say all Kremlin's are all the same all over Russia but this is no exception, perhaps wit the little Tatar twist. Otherwise there are very nice restored buidings, churches, restaurants and museums, even a cosy cafe selling hand made cakes.
  • Amazing place. The main attraction of Kazan, this place is a must visit. The place is very well preserved. The place looks beautiful during the day, and even more during the night, best time to visit would be somewhere between 4-5pm during summers. Beautiful place, highly recommend!
