The sites of the millennium-old city combine the culture of the West and traditions of the East: Old Tatar Settlement where Tatar residents lived from the 16th century, Textiles Settlement originating as a result of industrial reforms by Peter I, fountain squares, Kaban lake with its mysteries and legends, a simulated Tatar village Tugan Avylym (My Native Village), a new building of the Puppet Show, Kazan Federal University, Liberty Square as a cultural and administrative center of Kazan. During the sightseeing tour, you will see a variety of minarets and cupolas, crescents and crosses, which is a proof of a good neighborliness of the two native peoples – Tatars and Russians.
12:30 A walking tour “White-stone Fortress”. The Kazan Kremlin is the main sight of the city; it is a UNESCO world heritage site. The Kremlin is an official residence of the President of the Republic of Tatarstan and a state museum-preserve attended by thousands of tourists every year. The white-stone Kremlin is the heart of the ancient city that incorporates the culture of the East and West. Minarets of the main mosque of the city – Qul Sharif – shoot up into the sky, and cupolas of the Annunciation Cathedral, oldest one in Kazan, shine with gold. Inside the fortress, there is one of the symbols of Kazan – the famous “leaning” tower of Tsarina Suyumbike.
14:00 Lunch in a restaurant.
OPTION (EXTRA FEE) Folklore program «Yakyn Duslar» will immerse you in the world of the ancient culture of the Tatar people.

All tourists have the opportunity from the first minute of their stay in Kazan to touch the age-old culture of the Tatar people.
15:30 National Museum of the Republic of Tatarstan. The museum occupies the building of the former Gostiny Dvor, which is a monument of architecture and history of the Russian Federation and the Republic of Tatarstan. The museum’s funds were formed throughout its more than 120-year history with the participation of scientists from Kazan University and the Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Tatarstan, Kazan collectors. The museum collection numbers more than 850 thousand exhibits and reflects the history, culture and traditions of the peoples of the Volga region and Russia, Western and Eastern world cultures. The exhibits are presented in the expositions «The Ancient History of Tatarstan» and «Kazan Province in the XVIII Century».
17:00 A walking tour “Kazan Arbat”. Bauman Street is one of the most favorite places to walk for both residents and guests of Kazan, a meeting point for people in love. During the tour, make a lot of amazing discoveries: jets of fountains, belfry and Epiphany church where Fyodor Shalyapin was baptized, a monument to Shalyapin himself, a building of the National Bank, zero milestone, Peter & Paul Cathedral. Meet Su Anasy and learn the story of the Cat of Kazan whose monument always attracts crowds. Beyond competition is a replica of a luxury horse carriage used by Catherine II to move around Kazan during her visit in 1767. Shiny windows of numerous souvenir shops are so luring. Being in Kazan and missing a walk in Bauman Street – one of the oldest streets in the city – is the same as missing something most important.
18:30 Transfer to the railway station.
19:00 End of the tour.
