If your in Kazan you have to visit the mosque. The colours are fantastic and inside it looks modern and grand. Woman do have to wear head scarfs but the men don't.

Excellent place to be at Kazan Kremlin. Quite scenic and photogenic. You can spend a full day with family at Kremlin and places around it.

If you must see one thing in Kazan, that's it! Grandiose, elegant and a beauty. The largest mosque in Europe (not counting Istanbul's, because it wasn't originally a mosque). Make a second trip at night too.

It strikes your view the first time you see it. It's located on the hill so it can be seen from a distance. It is particularly beautiful at night time.

Given the relatively young age of this mosque, it is very beautiful. Make sure you go to the visitors gallery for the full feel of the place. I would imagine that Friday prayer times are very special, if you can time your visit.
