Ulitsa Baumana, the first lane to be made pedestrian in Kazan in 1986, is a must-see for every visitor. The list of landmarks to be found on Ulitsa Baumana is very long. It includes the Epiphany Church with its bell-tower, which is open to the public, St. John the Precursor Monastery, St. Nicholas Cathedral, Kachalov Bolshoi Drama Theatre, the constructivist former Press House, now a hotel, the statue of the great Russian bass singer Fyodor Shalyapin, the Cat of Kazan sculpture, the stationary replica of Catherine II’s coach, and the fountains with sculptures of fabulous creatures. The memorial tablet “Zero Meridian of Kazan” is also here, if you know where to look. Ulitsa Baumana is packed with Tatar and international restaurants and gift shops. There are plenty of amusements for kids on and around Ulitsa Baumana. Usually there are at least a couple of bands or solo musicians playing in the street. At the end of Ulitsa Baumana you approach the Kremlin.
