The Pokrovskaya church and a bell tower, what were built in 1703, are valuable monuments of Russian baroque of the early 18th century. Inside the church there are frescoes covering the arches, tiers and pillars and also an iconostasis in very good condition. The five-tier bell tower is building was until recently the only surviving example in the city of the glazed, scaly ceramic tiles which were widespread in Kazan in the 18th century. In 1885 in place of the Nikolskyi chapel, which had become dilapidated a new church was built onto the Pokrovskaya church from the southern side and was given the name of Nikolo-Nizskaya church.

    The mosque was built in 1849 by the architect A.I.Peske, and for many years was the most important Muslim religious buildings in Kazan (the minaret was destroyed in the Soviet time). In the words of the architect N.Khalitov, the significance of its appearance in the district of the ancient Kuraish settlement, where in the times of the Kazan Khans the famous Utyz (Otuch) mosque stood, was underlined by the symbolic use of the forms of the Dzhami minaret, thus symbolically transported from the city of Bulgar to the central square of Tatar Kazan.

     

     

     

  • Peter and Paul (Petropavlovskyi) cathedral

    Location: Kazan, Musa Dzhalil Str. 21

    The cathedral was built in 1723-1726 in memory of Peter the Great’s visit to Kazan, in place of the wooden Petrovskaya Church. The Peter and Paul cathedral is the most valuable example of Russian baroque architecture of the beginning of the 18th century. Unfortunately, time has not preserved the names of the creators of this remarkable building. The church and bell tower decorated as they are by a fantastic interwoven design of branches, grasses and grapevines, and painted in bright shades. The two-tier vaulted building of the church, which rises to a height of 52 metres, is skirted by an open curved gallery, which is reached by two main porches, one from the southwest, the other – from the north. Once on the gallery there is opportunity to notice how well chosen the location and architectural design of the building are. From the bell town there is a wonderful view of the city.
