The Millennium Park was opened in honour of the Kazan jubilee in 2005. Earlier this place was Degtyarnaya Ulitsa (Degtyarnaya Street) with dilapidated houses. The park is surrounded by a metal fence, its gates are decorated with the city's symbols – Zilant dragons. In the centre, there is a fountain made out of a huge cauldron, supported by Zilant figures. It is an illustration of one of the legends of how Kazan came to be, according to which it was founded, where a cauldron of water boiled on its own. Wedding processions like to come to the fountain, the bride and the groom throw in a coin and make a wish.
