Tatarstan is a region of peace and harmony. Here you can get acquainted with the objects of Muslim and Orthodox culture, visit the oldest mosques and churches, which for many years peacefully have coexisted on the same territory. If you want to be in the East and in the West at the same time, then you certainly need to be in Kazan. The “third” capital of Russia has historically absorbed the flavor of two different world cultures – the wise East with its love of fairy tales, magnificent decoration and a rational West with its business acumen and vigorous economic activity. Kazan, with its impressive Kremlin, mosques, churches and rich museums, is a unique attraction of tourist routes along the Volga and is included in the list of world heritage cities, awarded with diplomas and a UNESCO medal.
