Kazan Federal University owns several buildings, but the most beautiful is the main building with the monument of Lenin across the street and the view of Kazan Kremlin in the horizon towards Kremlyevskaya Street. Great atmosphere, friendly people, professional staff and beautiful buildings. Just love it!

I went there at weekend, so it was closed except the courtyard. The main building is very Russia, with pic. of Lenin & CCCP on the top. The garden should be more beautiful in other season except winter.

Amazing place, full of memorabilia of Lenin, Pushkin, Gorky, Tolstoy (although he didn't actually study there) and Lobachewski, father of non-euclidean geometry, who has, quite rightly, a bust to his honour in the main square. Packed with literary and academic history
