Amazing history and architecture

Despite being minus 17 degrees we totally enjoyed our walk around the buildings inside the Kremlin. Everything was free and the architecture incredible.

Visible from far away, the Kremlin with its unique skyline is a landmark you can't miss. Walking up from the city side, you enter through its ancient gates. From there you can choose several routes, passing the mosque, church, president house and numerous other old buildings.

Kazan, this city, that some people call third capital of Russia, probably because of the historical roots, nation's independent role, world connections after USSR breakdown and growing population, has changed a lot since 1995-1999 period, when the author of this story had a chance to see it in person, and still keep hanging after 2005, when it celebrated its milenium....

Loved the Kazan Kremlin (Fortress), in parts had an almost late medieval feel to it. Very well preserved with amazing views over the city and the Volga river. Can easily spend 2-3 hours exploring the complex, the Mosque was especially nice.

Unlike the kremlin in Moscow or Novgorod, Kazan Kremlin is predominantly white. It is located at the high area, so that you can see Kazan city from the Kremlin. There is no entrance fee. The complex is quite huge, so take your time when visiting Kremlin. There are many attractions in the complex. There are few cafes inside.

The guide books seriously downplay the beauty and history of this place; it's absolutely stunning and well laid out too.

This is an outstanding Architecture Ensemble to visit in Kazan. Unesco World Heritage Site, and totally deserving. Well preserved, and well restored. Cathedral, towers, mosques, churches, museums: it is all there. A must to visit!
