Constructed over the ruins of a former Tatar fortress, the walls of Kazan Kremlin enclose a vast space filled with parks, museums, and religious buildings, collectively designated as a World Heritage Site. The complex notably includes a 16th-century cathedral, one of few Russian churches featuring six piers and five apses. Other highlights include a 19th-century palace, now serving as the official residence of the president of Tatarstan, and a lavishly decorated mosque famous for its observation balcony and lotus-shaped dome. Be sure to visit the mosque's ground-floor museum, established to provide a glimpse into the region's Islamic history and culture.
