Last week we participated in a wonderful fam trip in Tatarstan. We would like to say our big thank you to the State Committee on Tourism of the Republic of Tatarstan for organizing the opportunity to get acquainted with Kazan.
We spent 4 days in this beautiful city. During the first two days we got acquainted with the major sights and tourist infrastructure of Kazan. Whether you come as a member of a tourist group or as an individual traveler, you will feel convenient in this modern city. More than 150 hotels from budget hostels up to luxurious hotel complexes are at your disposal in Kazan. The heart of Kazan is its outstanding Kremlin with the highest in Europe mosque and an orthodox church situated only 150 metres from one another.
The last two days were devoted to excursions to Sviyazhsk, which was founded by Ivan the Terrible to conquer Kazan, and to the ancient town of Bolgar, which was included into the UNESCO World Heritage List last year. Bolgar is an important town for all Muslims in Russia, because there the first people on the future territory of Russia accepted Islam as their religion.
We loved every sight, which we visited, and every minute of our adventure in Kazan!
It was a fabulous and very informative trip!
