The Kazan Cat is a nice little statue in the middle of the nicest street in the city. I walked past it a few times when going between stops along the drag, and I was sure to pet it each time I did.

Funny cat is sitting in the middle of Bauman street in Kazan. It looks cute and worth of stopping to take picture specially if you walk with kids. You can rub cat's belly to attract wealthiness as local people say.

They said that Kazan cat brought wealth, so you need to touch its tummy and pray that it came true. This giant bronze cat is well placed right in the middle of Bauman Street - you cannot miss it.

While you're in Bauman st., you'll exert no effort to take a photo there, just ask anyone around to take a photo of you if you have no company, most people around are super nice and would be glad to help.

Located close to the monument of carriage, the cute nice sitting cat is definitely a photo stop. The details are inscribed next to the statue.
