The tower is nice in its own right, but given it is in the middle of such amazing buildings it is not the star of the show.

It's a nice old tower with a beautiful legend. Unfortunately, you cannot come in and go to the top - just to look at it. Anyway, it's a must-visit place in Kazan.

The Tower is located in the Kremlin complex. It is beautiful and unique, and very well maintained. You will need to stay at a distance to watch the leaning angle.

It's already inside the Kremlin area, so no additional effort to visit. Interesting legend about why it leaned this way, will not spoil it :)

The tall tower shapes the skyline of the Bauman Street and looks impressive with the simple but nice exteriors. Good to take snaps at all times.

Read up on the legends surrounding this tower but also know that they probably aren't true. If you start researching it, you'll wind up falling down a Wikipedia hole through Tatarstan's complex history with Russia, but you'll be infinitely the better for it.

I didn't go inside not sure if you can. Everyone takes photos as it's the nearest maybe you will get to Pisa.
