Chaliapin's father, a peasant from Vyatka, was 18 when he left his parental home and headed for Kazan in search of a better life. He worked as a janitor, water carter, apprentice at a candle factory, and assistant clerk in the volost office of the Kazan uyezd. There are many places associated with Feodor Chaliapin in Kazan. He was born in house number 10 on the street which is now Ulitsa Pushkina (Pushkina Street). He was baptized in the Epiphany Cathedral. He had lived in Ometyevo (now an inner city neighbourhood), at Ulitsa Nekrasova (Nekrasova Sreet), in the Old Tatar Neighbourhood... There are dozens of Chaliapin addresses in Kazan. The annual Chaliapin Opera Festival, which Kazan hosts, is one of the many ways in which the city pays homage to its great son.
