  • Kazan University is the pride of Tatarstan. A complex of interesting buildings. And the main building with columns interesting and, of course, the anatomical theatre with exhibits. Rahodjatsja tubes freaks preserved in alcohol, abnormally developed parts of the body. The Cabinet immediately Zawojski is located.
