Architectural, cultural and historical values. 

The Kazan Kremlin is a large complex consisting of archaeological, historical and architectural monuments of the 12-20th centuries.

Many Years Ago

The settlement and development of the territory of the "Kremlin" hill began many centuries ago. The first settlement appeared here, according to some sources, back in the 10th century, already in the 12th century the Kremlin was an outpost of the northern borders of the Volga Bulgaria. From the second half of the 13th century it became the center of the Kazan principality of the Golden Horde, and then the Kazan Khanate.

"Kazan Has Fallen"

After the capture of Kazan by the troops of Ivan the Terrible, the structures of the Kremlin were significantly damaged, and the mosques were destroyed. By order of the tsar, Pskov architects were called to Kazan to build a white-stone Kremlin, erecting St. Basil's Cathedral Moscow. The fortress was significantly expanded, while the complete replacement of wooden defensive structures with stone ones took place only at the beginning of the 17th century.

In the 18th century, the Kazan Kremlin loses its military function and becomes the administrative and cultural center of the Volga region. Over the next centuries, the construction of the Governor’s Palace, the cadet school, a new bishop's house, a building of public places and a spiritual consistory was carried out here. In addition, the Annunciation Cathedral significantly reconstructed.

To the Present Day

After the revolution of 1917 in the Kazan Kremlin, the temple of the Spassky Monastery, the bell tower of the Annunciation Cathedral, the Churches of Cyprian and Justinia, the Chapel at the Spasskaya Tower and other objects were destroyed. In the 90s, the Kazan Kremlin received the status of the residence of the President of Tatarstan. Restoration work is being carried out here. In 1995, work began on the reconstruction of the Kul-Sharif mosque, which today is one of the largest in Europe. 

Today, you can see all the sights of the Kremlin in about one to one and a half days, a cursory inspection (that is, a sightseeing tour) lasts 1.5 hours.
