There are cities in Russia that are entitled to compete with Moscow for the metropolitan position. In one of these cities, much is comparable to the capital: the Kremlin, the metro, a lot of monuments protected by UNESCO, a large population and area. And all this is about Kazan. Where is Kazan? Let's see.

Location of Kazan

Kazan is one of the major cities with port and capital location. Speaking of the capital situation, I mean the fact that Kazan is the capital of the Republic of Tatarstan, and also informally called the “third capital of Russia”. The city is named in honor of the Kazanka River, which divides the city on the historical and the river side. In some parts of the city offers a picturesque view of the Volga. The relief in Kazan is uneven, in places there are hills and small mountains. At the same time, a large number of water bodies can be noted. There are even wetlands.

In addition to natural sites, Kazan is also rich in cultural monuments. Many of them are listed in the UNESCO World Heritage List and have a long history.

From Moscow, Kazan is separated by 820 kilometers (eastward).
