To understand how Kazan residents themselves perceive the city, what places they especially love, what they are proud of, how and where they spend their free time, I invite you on a sightseeing tour, during which you will get acquainted with the main attractions, as well as see other remarkable places known only to the townspeople, and learn about Tatar hospitality.

We will walk through the historical part of the city and consider iconic sights (Bauman St., Kazan Kremlin with the Kul Sharif mosque and the Annunciation Cathedral) and unique architectural monuments, as well as visit excellent places that tourists often do not notice.
I will tell the history of the city through facts and legends about its events and characters: about the emergence of Kazan and the meaning of the name, about the symbols that adorn the coats of arms of Tatarstan and Kazan, about the capture of Kazan by Ivan IV (the Terrible) and about the reasons for his actions - fictional and real; about the mysterious treasures of Lake Kaban; about the Kazan cat, which is also honored in St. Petersburg, about the Tsarina Syuyumbika - a fictional and real story of her life.
I will share my knowledge about Tatar traditions and the ethnographic diversity of the Tatars. I will also definitely tell you about Tatar cuisine, its originality and variety, about the places where you can enjoy it for little money.
And if you want to immerse yourself in the ethnographic and historical atmosphere with your head, for a small fee we can arrange a photo session in khan's and national costumes in the historical part of the city.
At the end of the trip, you will find a sweet surprise "with a Tatar accent" and my author's small guide to other "family places of Kazan", where you can go on your own later.
