Trip Planner: Europe / Russia / Volga District / Republic of Tatarstan / Kazan / Kremlyovskaya Embankment
Kreml or Kremlyovskaya is a station of the Kazan Metro. Opened as part of the first stage of the system on 27 August 2005, it is the system's northern terminus.Named after the Kazan Kremlin which is located nearby, architects R.Nurgalieva and S.Mamleyeva along with artist N.Khaziakhmetov incorporated a standard sub-surface single vault technology into the theme of the mythical fortress of the ancient Kazan Khanate. The station walls, are faced with beige Janina marble, and arranged in a geometry to create a white stone illusion. The walls are further topped by defensive "teeth", behind which lie the lighting elements.The walls themselves feature a set of "towers" and in their archways are mosaic artworks on the theme of everyday life in the Bulgarian and Kazan khanates. Whilst the archways located midway between the towers contain a similar mosaic which has inscribed Kazan - a white stone city in old Arabic Tatar, and in 15th-century Russian.The central axis of the platform contains five hollow concrete towers. Having numerous openings each of which is concealed with stained glass, and topped with a different glass figure. When lit inside they create a very effective part of the ensemble, the central one of which is styled to resemble the Söyembikä Tower, the two furtherst ones are topped with mousoleums and symbolise the history of the Kazan khanate, whilst the two interim ones are topped with minarets and symbolise the Islamic faith of the Tatars. Their practical role comes from them being surrounded by wooden benches.Find out how to plan Kazan trip without stress by asking Inspirock to help create an itinerary.
