Architecture of Kazan

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
What to Expect
You will be able to see the result of both eastern and western influence on Kazan architecture, as well as witness its eventual transformation. The capital of Tatarstan dates back to more than a 1000 years ago. Throughout this time its history has been embodied in numerous architectural monuments, which have combined various styles and tendencies for several hundreds of years.

The most remarkable sights are situated in the city centre, where the two cultures – eastern and western – have been developing and interrelating for more than 500 years. Modern Kazan is a decent example of historic tolerance and religious unity: here you can find both Orthodox churches (16-19 centuries) and Muslim mosques built mainly after Katherine the Great order (1766) and in recent times. A lot of old buildings have been restored and reconstructed, a number of new have been built including a world famous wonder – Kul Sharif Mosque inside Kazan Kremlin walls.
