One of Russia's most-visited cities
On the banks of the mighty Volga river, Kazan has a history dating back one thousand years but is a modern, vibrant cosmopolitan city that is no stranger to major international events, including the last football World Cup.
The city is also growing as a tourist destination, with attractions like the Kazan Kremlin, a World Heritage Site, as well as more than 30 museums and one of the best circuses in Russia.
Language, weather, and transport
The majority language is Russian, although Tatar is widely spoken among native Tatars, who make up just under half the population of 1.2 million, which is drawn from more than 100 nationalities.
While the temperature can drop to a chilly minus 20C, expect an average of around 23C in August with plenty of sunshine.
As well as international airport and rail links across Russia, the city has trams, trolley buses, nearly 2,000 kilometres of bus routes, bike sharing, and a metro line with ten stations.
