Russia is divided into several counties, of which Tatarstan is one. The colorful city of Kazan is the capital of the Tatarstan region and is a large, sprawling port city situated under 500 miles away from the Russian capital of Moscow.
Don't miss the colorful Kazan Kremlin while in town -- a colorful, blue domed castle that has been listed as a UNESCO protected site. The Temple of All Religions is a unique site that is a beautiful portrayal of the desire for peace and unity among humanity. The religious site contains a mosque, a church and a synagogue all combined and is quite unlike anything you have likely seen ever before.
In terms of art, history and culture, Kazan is a city with plenty to offer. The city center of Kazan is packed with museums and art galleries -- in fact, there are over 30 museums contained within the center. One museum which may be of interest to visitors is the National Museum of Tatarstan Republic. The museum provides a fascinating chronological insight into the history of the Tatarstan region and is a good insight for getting familiarized with the area. Art lovers will also enjoy browsing hundreds of classic and contemporary pieces at the Museum of Fine Arts of the Republic of Tatarstan.
A locally adored pastime is taking a trip to the theater or to the Russian ballet at the Tatar Academic State Opera and Ballet Theater.
