In its construction was attended by many European architects, painters, sculptors, which affected the appearance of the city. The city itself stands on the Neva River and the central part is permeated by small rivers and canals, so in the city a lot of bridges.
You will see all beauties and feel the special spirit of this city.

This city has very interesting and old history. Life never stops there. Day and night it moves and breathes. And you probably know - Moscow(and also our antenna) Never Sleeps.
Kazan
This city is Russian «Third Capital». City of two religion. Muslims and Christians live here many centuries in peace and harmony.
