    The history of the central shopping street of Kazan lasts for many centuries, during which it has repeatedly changed its name. During the time of the Kazan Khans, it was called Nogai Road, and when Ivan the Terrible's troops stormed the Kazan Kremlin, blowing up its walls, the street was renamed Prolomnaya, leaving the memory of this event for several centuries. There are many architectural monuments here and each building has its own amazing history!

The multi-level lighting of the city's main attractions rivals the dazzling lights of fashionable new buildings and entertainment centers in sophistication. This dispute is reconciled by the Cauldron separating them, reflecting in its waters the brilliance and splendor of the two shores. Kazan at night is a truly amazing sight that every guest of the Tatar capital should see!

    The main highlight of the evening trip will be a visit to the ultramodern Ferris wheel "Around the World", one of the highest in Russia (65 meters) (for an additional fee).
