Owner description: The historic fortress dating back to the 16th to 19th centuries.
Reviewed July 13, 2013

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.

If you have to see one thing in Kazan, this is it. The Kazan Kremlin is truly fascinating. The old fortress has commanding views of the Kazanka and the Volga. Don't miss the cathedral and the beautiful mosque.

Full of history, very well kept and maintained, located in the very heart of Kazan. The personnel, guides and security are very friendly, love and know their city and this very amazing place. Beautiful at day and night, not extremely crowded and easy to access all the important points inside.
Some exhibitions are also located inside the Kremlin and it is recommended to check in advance what is in and what are the opening hours.

Safe and nice to walk with families. Great views and very clean. The mosque is in the middle but closes early. The kremlin itself is open 24hrs my hotel said.

Free entrance, there are tours but they are only in Russian. Inside the Kremlin you can visit the Mosque or churches and have a panoramic view over the river and the new city.
To enter the mosque you need to cover your head and PAY 2 rubles to get plastic socks to put on top of your feet. You can climb on the 3rd floor to view the mosque praying room from above. There is a museum on the lower floor (fee to enter) but I did not find it very interesting. Most of the paintings are just printed posters.
