Kazan is the capital of the Republic of Tatarstan which is one of the most dynamically developing regions of Russia.
The history of Kazan began more than 1000 years ago, when fortress of great strength was built on a high hill near the Kazanka River. Today, this fortress - the Kremlin - is the main attraction of the city and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Despite the thousand-year history, today Kazan is a modern metropolis, where every fourth inhabitant is young. Therefore, in addition to historical sights, there are many locations in Kazan that are attractive to young people - the “URAM” Extreme Park, the National Library of the Republic of Tatarstan, the “Shtab” Creative Industries Residence, the “Sozvezdie-Yoldyzlyk” Art Residence, the IT Park, the Contemporary Culture Center “Smena”, Art space “Werk” and others.
