Well it's not little by any standard other than comparison to the immense Moscow Kremlin. The mixture of architecture is varied which makes this a beautiful place to visit. Great place to go.

Probably the second must visit place in the city (no. 1 being the Mosque), not nearly as large as the Moscow Kremlin, but very nice to walk around and visit just as well.

The Kremlin of Kazan is a spot you can't miss if you are in the city, there's a Mosque a Christian Orthodox Church and a view point that is amazing from where you can see the palace of agriculture and the river.

Every old and larger city in Russia has a Kremlin of some sort. This is a large and diverse one well worth seeing. This is a mixture of many centuries and religions represented.

A beautiful historical place to visit while in Kazan. Some museums are also located here at the territory. Unfortunately, we didn't have much time, so we only could visit the Weapons Museum. Which was small and nice.

I would highly recommend a visit to the Kremlin. Not as crowded as Moscow but very interesting. The exhibit at the Hermitage was well worth the cost. The WWII museum was also interesting, though no one spoke English and the exhibits were not in English...More

My partner and I visited the outside of the mosque on a Sunday, which just so happened to be the day that Mexico played Portugal in futbol. However, even though we visited around 3:00 PM, there were not many people around the Kremlin, so it...More

I believe this is correct; I was there for a whole week and never heard the call to prayer, though I did hear Orthodox Church bells. The Kazan Kremlin mosque was built as an education centre, distinct from a "normal" working... More
