Kazan Kremlin, Kazan

4.8
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.

  • We saw the Kazan Kremlin at night from the embankment. His lights attracted, I wanted to admire more and more. In the afternoon with the child strolled for several hours. The museums did not go except the Kul-Sharif mosque. The walls, excavations, the Tower of the Queen Syuyumbike, the magnificent cathedral, bypassed all the towers of the Kremlin. The tour did not take, used the phone, scanned QR tablets. Read and watched. We decided to return necessarily.

  • You can spend the whole day on the territory of the Kremlin. And visit the museums, look into the dome and see the excavations, admire the famous tower of the Queen Syuyumbike.

  • Amazing place that combines the Muslim world with the Christian one. Solid proof of two cultures coming in and sharing a space together.
  • Definitely a must see if you're coming to Kazan. A lot to do in the Kremlin. You can also visit some museums here. Would've been nice to see more English inside.
