Loading...

A lot of people would like to visit the Tatar Republic to have a good rest and to see the most interesting place of the region. The company “Semeiny Chemodan” is happy to offer a two-day excursion program “Kazan-Yoshkar-Ola” that gives an opportunity to see the most famous churches, mosques, historical buildings, monuments and sculptures.

During the first day the tourists go sightseeing along the city of Kazan, visit the main attractions of this big city of Russia. It is amazing, but in Kazan Christian churches and Muslim mosques are combined that shows the close existence of cultural and historical traditions of both beliefs. The most famous historical place of the city is the Kazan Kremlin, a great brick complex with high walls and towers.

Tourists visit Old-Tatar Sloboda, a place where the tatar people lived after the siege of Kazan. Here you can see old wooden houses, ancient stone buildings; you can walk along narrow wandering streets. In the central streets of the city – Pushkin Street, Tolstoy Street, Gorky Street – there are a lot of souvenir and gift shops. It is extremely interesting to visit National complex “Tugan Avylym” where tourist can try the traditional tatar cuisine, Russian pancakes cooked in the Russian stove and attend different master-classes and interactive programs.

Next morning a comfortable bus will drive tourists to the city of Yoshkar-Ola that is 150 km from Kazan. Yoshkar-Ola is a small cultural-historical centre, where you can visit a lot of interesting places. A rich excursion program includes visiting the most important churches of the city (Cathedral of the Resurrection of Christ, Church of the Assumption of Virgin Mary, Peter and Fevronia Chapel), the Tsarevokokshaiskiy Kremlin and the Annunciation Tower. The Kremlin and the Annunciation Tower look very like the Moscow Kremlin that speaks about the same architectural style of the buildings of the same epoch. No doubt it will be a greatly interesting and informative excursion.
