This is one of my favorite places in all of Russia. The mosque inside the kremlin is both striking and unique - apparently it's the largest mosque in all of Russia. Everything is meticulously maintained - it looks like something out of a Disney fairytale. But more than that, this place has a great energy. Locals go there for walks, concerts and wedding photo shoot. When I was there a flash mob was going on outside the kremlin and young Russian singers were belting out American pop in the square in front of the mosque inside the kremlin. It's wonderful place to spend an afternoon.
