» Parks of Kazan
» Novo-Savinovsky suburb
» River Volga (with Kazan river port)

Night train from Moscow arrived to Kazan at morning. We bought a map from a general store close to the railway station and made a walk in the city centre of Kazan.

There were some people at the station but otherwise the city looked suspiciously empty. We were later told that it was some kind of a Russian public holiday which explained the quietness.
