Helipad at Grand Hotel Kazan

Yegor Aleyev/TASS

The helipad is on the 16th floor of the Grand Hotel Kazan in the centre of the city. The view from here is on Ulitsa Bauman (Bauman Street), the Opera Theatre, the Kazan Circus, the Saints Peter and Paul Cathedral, the Kaban Lake, the Tatar State Academic Theatre named after Galiasgar Kamal, the Kazan Millennium Park, the Old-Tatar Sloboda (Neighbourhood), the Kul Sharif Mosque, and the Kazan Kremlin.

The central part of the city has mostly low-rise houses, thus the view may be very good. Before visiting, inquire if the helipad is open: no tours are allowed in rain or strong wind.
