Kazan is a feast of a city. Cold winters and hot summers, Muslim minarets and Orthodox monasteries, the ancient archeological sites and the science city of Innopolis, forest steppes, taiga and the Great Silk Road all mix in the cauldron that is the Tatar capital. The result of this melting pot is the self-sufficient and self-assured third capital of Russia that each year extends a warm welcome to a million guests who come here to experience all sorts of impressions and emotions.

ticket office: Mon – Sun 10 a.m. – 7 p.m.
The Bolshoi Drama Theatre of V. I. Kachalov, one of the oldest theatre companies in Russia, gives centre-stage to musical comedies with lots of music and dancing, complemented by eccentric costumes and props. This is the signature style of the company's head director Alexander Slavutsky. Just as effervescent are the Theatre's children's shows, which draw large audiences. The company has the plays Golden Key, Little Red Riding Hood, Doctor Aybolit, and Ivan the Fool and the Demons on its children's playlist.
