Kazan Metro beautiful architecture
A rapid-transit system that serves the capital city of Kazan, Republic of Tatarstan, Russia opened on August 27, 2005. In fact, it has become the newest system in Russia, seventh in Russia, and 15th in the former USSR. At present, the Kazan Metro is a single-line system that stretches nearly ten kilometers and has seven stations. As the newest of all Russian systems, it is also the most modern of them, with exceptionally beautiful underground architecture and design. Smart-card ticketing and semi-automated train drive are features that at the time were just being introduced in selected Moscow stations.
By the way, its first passengers were Russian President Vladimir Putin, Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev and Tatarstan President Mintimer Shaimiev.

Kazan is the “third” capital of Russia, having cheerfully celebrated its 1000th anniversary, modern and archaic at the same time. Perhaps this is the most unpredictable city in the whole country, because here, as in a large cauldron (or kazan, to be precise), mixed not only the culture of the East and the West, but also religion, mentality, and history. For example, the ancient Kremlin, founded in the 12th century decorates the one bank of the river Kazanka. And on the other – futuristic skyscrapers of the 21st century. Side by side stand the mosque and the Orthodox church, and hurrying to the service, there are girls of both religions in scarves. They are also funny tweeting with each other in the evening in a European-looking coffee house. On the streets there are cats, carriages and – all of a sudden! – the Kazan drake, of course, in the form of monuments. Noteworthy, the subway stops are announced in three languages ​​- and one of them is English.
