Situated in the downtown Kazan, easily accessible by metro and busses. A must visit while in the area.

I visited, and thoroughly enjoyed, the Kazan Kremlin this week. As most of the signage isn't in English, and the Russian guidebooks don't cover Kazan in detail, here are my top tips. If you find this helpful, please let me know! 1. The walled enclosure...More

Each visit to Kazan brings me to its Kremlin, which unlike Moscow's is open to walk about in without a ticket. There are some good museums inside (the National Gallery is a favourite), shops with Tatar handicrafts, and some nice views of the Volga River.

There are few places where you can visit a cathedral and mosque in the same square. The history, the varied architecture are unique. You can spend hours, or do a quick walk-through in one hour. Do consider a trained guide who will enhance the experience...More

The place is amazing, full of vibrant history and symbols of cohabitation between two different cultures. Everything is very well preserved .The place is quiet , not two many tourists, and this makes the experience more deep

If you visit Kazan you just have to visit the Kremlin. It is very easy to get to from Bauman street. You can walk into the Kremlin and see the whole site which contains a few great buildings.

This is a great site in Kazan. We went there our first day on our vacation. We got a guide from the tourist center at the front gate. She was very friendly and informative. It's a beautiful location filled with history.

Went as part of three country tour, so seen a lot of buildings prior to this, but well worth it. It wasnt very busy when we were there, which was great. Fantastic views and great history.

It is a place full of Tartar history. Kremlin walls are well preserved. Of particular interest is the mosque and church side by side. Very nice views from kremlin.
