As the capital city of the Republic of Tatarstan, Kazan is a glorious city that represents Russia's Tsarist past. With complex palaces, towering churches, and a thriving cultural scene, Kazan is a pure Russian city with incredible beauty and heart. As the "Third Capital of Russia," there is plenty to see and to do while staying in Kazan. Visitors can enjoy long walks down the streets of the city, as each of them offers a new arrangement of colors and historic buildings. Kazan is also one of the largest economic, political, scientific and cultural centers of the country. One of the main attractions is the Kazan Kremlin. Built by Ivan the Terrible on the ruins of the palace of the Kazan Khanate that he destroyed, this white fortress is a beautiful sight in any season, and there are many walking points nearby. In 2005 Kazan celebrated its millennium jubilee. Despite of such venerable age, the city is growing and dynamically developing in all respects. Contemporary changes in the outside appearance of Kazan are contributed by architects with worldwide known names. There are lots of museums, libraries, concert halls and theaters. Two renowned international festivals: the opera festival named after F.

I. Shalyapin and the classical ballet festival named after R. Nuriev have been regularly held for a period of many years in the Opera and Ballet Theatre. Apart from the local museums there is "Ermitazh-Kazan" Center which is the only branch of the famous museum in Saint Petersburg. Kazan easily combines the culture and traditions of the East and the West: next to the finely cut minaret towers there are old Orthodox churches. So no wonder the second essential tourist attraction of Kazan is the Temple of All Churches. This astonishing work of art represents 16 international religions in one awe-inspiring temple. With twisting towers combined with washes of color, the Temple of All Churches alone is worth the visit. While not all of the spires, minarets, and other unique features are completed, the Temple of All Churches still remains one of the most unique churches in the world. A prevailing feature of life in the city is peaceful, creative coexistence of different religions and nationalities. Due to its gorgeous architecture, breathtaking scenery, and welcoming locals, Kazan is the perfect destination for travelers of all ages.
