Yegor Aleyev/TASS

Scenic views of new Kazan open up behind the Kazan eparchy's cathedral, which was built after Ivan the Terrible conquered Kazan (architect Postnik Yakovlev, author of the Saint Basil's Cathedral in Moscow). Those are images of the Kazanka River, which looks magnificently after the Kuybyshev water reservoir was made, the so-called Kvartal – the Novo-Savinsky district, and the building of agricultural ministry, also called Palace of Agriculturists. If you get up the Transfiguration Tower, you may see far ahead the Monument to Fallen Soldiers, the Kyrlai Park, Ploschad Tysyacheletiya (Tysyacheletiya Square) and the Kremlin's panorama.
