If you must see one thing in Kazan, that's it! Grandiose, elegant and a beauty. The largest mosque in Europe (not counting Istanbul's, because it wasn't originally a mosque). Make a second trip at night too.

The mosque are very well decorated and it still function as mosque on day-to-day basis. There is an islamic museum in it that tells more about Islam which i think is very good.

This Mosque is extremely beautiful. Both from the inside and outside. There were many Russian tourists, and significantly a lot more than foreign tourists. Remember to dress modestly as this is a mosque, and to respect the culture, cover up your hair, shoulders, arms, and legs (for women) - in the winter, a beanie and a scarf would suffice. It... More

The Mosque is simply breath-taking with its blue dome. Visitors are allowed to go in and walk around the exhibition area (but before entering, the staff there will provide you with head scarf - for the women) You are welcomed by a mellifluous sound of an Al-hafiz reciting verse from the Quran. The interior of the mosque was astoundingly beautiful... More

It strikes your view the first time you see it. It's located on the hill so it can be seen from a distance. It is particularly beautiful at night time.

Given the relatively young age of this mosque, it is very beautiful. Make sure you go to the visitors gallery for the full feel of the place. I would imagine that Friday prayer times are very special, if you can time your visit.

It was the most beautiful mosque I've seen(outside). Free entrance. Go to left or right upstairs - nice vision! Downstair museum is small and main parts of it are books - 200rub. Wasn't interesting for me
