Polish Roman Catholic Church – Parish of the Holy Cross

Location: Kazan, Ostrovsky Str. 73

The light building of the Kazan Roman Catholic church surrounded by a small garden was built in 1858. Due to reconstruction by the architect P.T. Zhukovskyi in 1908, it has acquired, according to specialists, the very typical appearance of a Polish Roman Catholic church, which is easy to explain when you remember the sizeable Polish diaspora in Kazan and the region. Unlike many other churches in Kazan, which have been returned to their religious communities, the Kostel continues in secular use as one of the buildings of the Tupolev Kazan State Technical University.
