A beautiful city, the third largest in Russia. Steeped in tartar culture. Beautifully layed out. A must to also visit the old settlement. Highlight is the Qul Sharif mosque. Stunning architecture.

This is what you come for, and it is wonderfully worthwhile. There is a 17th-century church noticeably by the same architect of Ivan the Terrible's who built St. Basil's on Red Square Moscow. There is a splendid 21st-century mosque, justly famous.

The Kremlin has a lot to offer. Several churches, several very interesting museums, great views of the city, the mosque and the palace. You can go on the wall and one tower where there is another amazing view.
