The kremlin of Kazan is pretty impressive. Right outside the Kremlin is the Musa Jalil Statue, honoring the legendary Tatar. Inside the Kremlin, there is the Kul Sharif Mosque and the Anunciation Cathedral (Ru: Благовещенский Собор), which shows the unique and impressive mix of cultures and religions between the Muslims and Christians.

On a business trip so had limited time for the tour, but our English speaking guide was understanding and very knowledgeable about which highlights we should see. Definitely worth visiting, lots of history and more accessible, less official and Military than Moscow kremlin. I will definitely return for a more in depth tour and look around.

The place is rather small but concentrates a few beautiful building, the most spectacular being the Kul Sharif mosquee.
