I am writing a memoir about my life and my travels. I visited the Peterhof Gardens in Peterhof Palace in St. Petersburg, May 20th, 2012. It was under renovation and shrouded with scaffolding so I couldn’t get a good photo of it. I would like to use a copy of your picture of it in my book where I am writing about that visit. Would you grant me that permission to use the photo Peterhof Gardens in Peterhof Palace in St. Petersburg? I will greatly appreciate it.

Hi Natalia, I will be staying in Kazan for 5 days during the World Cup. Do you know if there are any places to visit around Kazan (day trips)? Thanks! David



Dear David , Let us know when you are arriving and your plans? We can check for custom services and guides for you . As you asked, In Kazan there are lot of good attractions surrounding countryside and the region’s immense cultural heritage becomes very clear. If you’re looking for a change of pace away from the city hubbub, and step into a wealth of Tatar culture and an ancient land just out of the mighty Kazan. Some of them are follows: Raifa Monastery About 30 km (19 miles) out of Kazan is the Raifa Monastery, situated in the Volga-Kama Reserve – a dreamy UNESCO protected nature sanctuary found at the conflux of the Volga, Kama and Myosha Rivers. Sviyazhsk Island Head to Sviyazhsk Island for a feel of Tatars tan’s beautiful remoteness, The island, despite being connected to the mainland, lies in the juncture of the Volga and Sviyage Rivers and feels further than the 60 km (38 miles) it actually is from Kazan. Yelabuga This spot is a quaint old merchant town 210 km (130 miles) away from Kazan on the banks of the Kama River. Its lack of a train station has meant the city has retained a lot of its yesteryear charm. Bolghar The region’s ancient capital and of great significant Tatar cultural importance, Bolghar, about 130 km (81 miles) out of Kazan along the Volga, is now home to several World Heritage sights. As the intermittent capital of of Volga-Bulgaria between the 8th and 15th centuries, We look forward to know more about your arrival plans, Regards Natalia


Hi Natalia, thank you so much for getting back to me! What about other cities around Kazan, do you know if there are any other attractions outside of the town?



Hello David, Kul Sharif Mosque, Roman Catholic Church, Temple of All religions, White Stone Catheredral of Annunciation, Baumana Fountain, and Fountain in Kremlin and Millennium Park Fountain are the top tourist attractions of the city. We wish you a happy stay in Kazan 🙂
