  • How was it? With aching longing in the heart! It's worth seeing! Everyone can find at least one thing that he had in the 70 's, 80 's, 90-th. .. Great place for nostalgic memories and cool photo!

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.
