Kazan, the regional capital of Russia, is often called the «Pearl of the Central Volga Region». It is located in the most picturesque part on both sides of the Volga River. Though the official date of the foundation of the city is considered to be the 12th century, scientists believe that the history of Kazan began much earlier. Russians and Tatars have been living here together for many centuries which has influenced the unique culture and traditions of this interesting city in many ways.
