there are quite a few structures-buildings not for public visit. Signage needs to be improved in my opinion. A lot has been said here, a lot very accurate. It is very apparent the Kazan population is proud of the history & heritage of their region....More

If you are spending more than a few hours in Kazan, there's no excuse for not visiting its Kremlin. It is key to understanding the history of Tatarstan and offers memorable architecture, art, and a terrific small natural history museum which kids will love.

Not as crowded as Moscow, beautifully kept grounds; you can climb the stairs and shoot arrows and get a great view.

Well worth taking a walk around if you're in Kazan. Only need half an hour for a self guided look around.

The Kazan Kremlin is open to all, however if you are not covered 'modestly' (i.e shorts, sleeveless tops for women etc) then they will provide you with a small down. Once you get inside, there is a array of history to view, including a viewing...More
