The inside story

Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2000, the Kazan Kremlin sits upon an ancient site dating back to the Islamic period of the 10th century. This historic citadel of Russia is located in the city of Kazan, now located in the Tartarstan Republic.

The pre-Mongol Bulgar city once housed a settlement surrounded by moats and a stockage. In the 12th century the white fortress walls were added as the city grew to its position as the capital of the state. During the 15th century, as the city was growing it’s political, military and commercial center it was conquered by Ivan the Terrible whom would build a Kremlin on its grounds.

Today the Kazan Kremlin’s historic layers are celebrated for its cultural diversity. On a visit inside the fortified walls you can find the Governor’s Palace and Syuyumbeki’s Tower, the Annunciation Cathedral, the Public Offices, the Saviour-Transfiguration Monastery, the Cadets’ School, and the Cannon Foundry all with archaeological layers ranging from 3 m to 8 m in depth.

The original mosque located in the Kremlin was destroyed entirely when the city was captured by Ivan the Terrible and would not open its doors again until 2005. The mosque of Kul Sharif was reconstructed in the traditional design and decor of its surroundings and continues to symbolize the city’s spiritual heritage.
