The Eiffel Tower in Paris, The Colosseum in Rome, The Pyramids in Egypt, etc.. and The Kul Sharif .. now you have seen it all ! The most remarkable Tatar mosque with amazing acoustics. Amazing during the daylight, and breathtaking in the night.

The most beautiful mosque I've ever seen. Night time you can feel like in a fairytale. Definitely the most important sight in Kazan.

A stunning building, the mosque as impressive inside. This grand building is a significant example of the revival of religion in Russia

Entry is free to this beautiful mosque. As expected women need to have their head covered. Photos with no flash are allowed. You can go up stairs at either side to look down from the gallery. The windows and structure are stunning.

Dropping by on a winter evening, it was a stunning experience being able to enter and experience the overwhelming atmosphere of this great mosque. Walking through the Kazan Kremlin the mosque is a unique landmark. Nicely lit it attracts attention from far away. An absolute must see
