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.

Its facade is decorated with a sculpture of the famous E=mc² formula by sculptor Ildar Khanov (his most famous work is the Temple of All Religions, which became a popular tourist attraction in Kazan).
