The Kremlin through the ages
Loading...

The main attraction of the capital of the Tatar Republic is the Kazan Kremlin. This is the epic architectural ensemble including more than 10 various buildings. It is interesting that the walls and the towers of the Kremlin look very similar to the walls of the Moscow fortress. That means that the places where governors used to live in the past were built in the same style. The beauty of the Kazan Kremlin is known all over the country. That is why a lot of tourists come here every day to admire this magnificent architectural masterpiece.

Unfortunately at the end of the 19th century the oldest towers such as Northern Tower, Pentagonal Tower and Eastern Tower were demounted. Dmitry Tower was replaced by the arch. Tourists usually start the excursion on the Kremlin with Spasskaya Tower, that was built in the 16th century by architects Postnik Yakovlev and Ivan Shirjay (who also designed St. Basil Cathedral in Moscow). South –western Round Tower is a classic example of the Pskov style in the defense architecture. Tainistskaya Passage Tower is also very interesting for the tourists. It is built in such a way that inside the tower it was possible to secretly take water from the underground spring.

You need a few hours to see all the interesting places of the Kazan Kremlin, but for sure it is worth it. After the excursion is finished you will have a full idea of what the Kremlin is and what is situated here. The specialists of the company “Semeiny Chemodan” will assist you with further information and answer all your questions.
