The building of the Kazan planetarium is constructed in the high-tech style with the elements of space topic. There are 2 domes in the building: large and small. The large dome is made of a thin perforated aluminum sheet. Under the large dome there is a hall for 87 seats. It is called the Great Star Hall. It is not just a dome, but it’s a screen. The screen has a slope of 10 degrees. This allows creating the 3 D effect.
Here you see the stars and the sky as astronauts see it or as if you watch them through the most powerful, modern telescopes. There are no real telescopes in the planetarium. Visitors can admire the stars thanks to the digital system for full-dome films and thanks to the optical-mechanical projector.
