Kazan is probably the most tourist-friendly city in Russia after St. Petersburg. It’s clean, safe, relaxed, rich, and has lots of beautiful sights and places to chill. The special thing about Kazan is the mix of two cultures: East and West, Muslim and Orthodox. There are not many places in the world where such a diverse population cohabits in such a peaceful manner and Kazan is a great example of that.
Is that a reason not to visit Kazan in winter? One of the reasons is its Kremlin that is covered in snow. From there is a beautiful views on the frozen Volga river that runs through the city. It is wonderful.
Kazan’s main attractions like its Kremlin and cosy Bauman street only get more beautiful once the winter brings in a blanket of snow. Furthermore, Russian winters are an experience in itself and will add an extra dimension to your visit. If you consider traveling to Kazan in winter, we can say that the city still has a lot to offer.
The program is preliminary. The organizers reserve the right to replace the excursion blocks with similar ones, without changing main waypoints.
