Welcome to Tatarstan, the heart of Tatar’s Russia!
Upon arrival, have breakfast and take a transfer to Sviyazhsk Island for half-day (4 hours) guided tour. Discover its unique history as the place has hardly changed over the last century. With no fewer than 37 cultural monuments on the island, including two monasteries and seven churches, it’s next to impossible to explore everything at this historic and scenic island, which is now UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The pearl of the collection is the Trinity Church – the only preserved wooden church in Sviyazhsk from the times of Ivan the Terrible (XVI century). It was built without a single nail and the axe marks made by the Yaroslavl carpenters can still be seen.
Then we will come back to Kazan and check-in at the hotel. Evening free at leisure to explore the city.
