Things to do: sightseeing, religious sites, museums

Sports Capital of Russia

The heart of Tatar culture, Kazan carries the epithet of the "Third Capital of Russia" because of its rich history and thriving economy. The largest city in the autonomous republic of Tatarstan, this energetic urban center sits on the confluence of the Kazanka and Volga Rivers. Its famed fortress, built on the orders of Ivan the Terrible and noted for containing a striking five-domed cathedral, serves as the area's major tourist attraction, inscribed on the World Heritage List. The meeting point of Slavic and Tatar ethnicities, Kazan boasts as many Christian church towers as Islamic minarets. Begin your adventure by exploring the pedestrian-friendly city center, the hub of Kazan's shopping and entertainment activities. When using our Russia trip generator to make an itinerary online, Kazan holidays come together around your tastes, interests, and requirements, with us taking care of the logistics.

Where to stay

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.
