One of the most beautiful mosque that I visited, there is a museum in the ground floor where you can learn a lot of the history there

Very beautiful mosque both inside and outside. Free entrance. It looks amazingly great in the evening when the backlights are turned on. There are also other places of interest just near the mosque - all in one place, in the city center.

This mosque and its surroundings are just incredible. The construction itself is out of this world, but so is the view from next to it. And the area and buildings around it are really nice. Best place to visit in Kazan!
