HOME / Kazan

“Kazan has indeed seared my brain with its brand”. 

“I don't know any other city in the world there hospitality would be more wide-spread and would be so casual as in Kazan”. Edward Turnerelli 

“This city is home to Orthodox and Catholic Christians, Muslims, Protestants, Jews and other smaller religions. What's crazy is that they are all welcomed by local government and given free rain to display symbols of their faith proudly”. 

“What's even crazier is that everyone, no matter how different, speaks Russian”. 

“I've seen a unique part of the world in which eastern and western cultures coexist harmoniously”.
