  • Kazan University-the Dean of the oldest in Russia. Within its walls really feel the spirit of history, the piety of the great minds that changed our lives. The building is very different, because the complex includes buildings 19 and 20 centuries, but they are all beautiful

  • Kazan University-attraction in the city centre, magnificent, beautiful. But on the road he wonders too much attention, in my opinion. Opposite the entrance to the University stands the monument to Lenin.

Where to stay in Kazan

Home to numerous sights and known as the Third Capital of Russia, the city of Kazan is the prime destination in Tatarstan. The city boasts a selection of accommodations to match every taste and budget. While it may lack the extravagance of some of Moscow's high-end hotels, it still offers a good selection of both modern and historical luxury lodging. Most of the city's best-known hotels sit relatively close to the center, so you don't have to worry about long commutes. Venture just beyond the center to find several smaller boutique hotels, bed and breakfasts, and hostels, as well as numerous fully furnished apartments available for short-term rental.
