The largest skating rink in Kazan stays open very late throughout the year. However, it is advisable to phone ahead about the working hours, as a hockey match or concert may be scheduled. You have to leave a deposit to rent a pair of skates. There is a café on the premises. Kids and teens under 18 are not admitted after 10 p.m., unless accompanied by adults. They will ask you to skate counter clockwise. A skating instructor and a physician are on hand.
