What to expect

The Kazan Kremlin is the main attraction of the city, a UNESCO world heritage site.

The Kremlin is the official residence of the President of the Republic of Tatarstan and the State Museum-reserve, which is visited by thousands of tourists every year. The white stone Kremlin is the heart of an ancient city that has absorbed the culture of the east and west. The minarets of Kul Sharif, the main mosque of the city, soar into the sky and the domes of the Annunciation Cathedral, the oldest in Kazan, Shine with gold. Inside the fortress is one of the symbols of Kazan-the famous "falling" tower of Queen Suyumbike.

On this tour you will also have a master class on tying a scarf in the Museum of Islamic culture.

After this, you will visit the Kazan mother of God monastery. Its history is inextricably linked with the acquisition, glorification and veneration of the miraculous Kazan icon of the mother of God In Russia. Kazan has been a Holy place in Russia since 1579, when the mother of God suddenly showed the greatest mercy: the Kazan icon.
This icon is one of the most revered in the Russian Church. They pray to her, they ask her for help. At the same time, only a few people know what path the miraculous icon took and where it came from.
