The Kul Sharif Mosque in Kazan

Beautiful and educational. The museum in the basement is worth visiting. The architecture inside is wonderful.

With its many minarets this modern mosque stands out in Kazan's Kremlin als a symbol of the city's multicultural background.

In my personal opinion this is an ugly mosque both inside and out but as it is part of the Kremlin, you may as well have a look at it. Furthermore the entrance fee is only 3 rubles (yes, 3 rubles or 4 or 5 cents in euros or dollars) so definitely not a ripoff. And for that money you... More

Not sure who chose to build this here, it seems out of place. Although it is a nice enough mosque, I just wonder why!

The main aim of our visiting Kremlin in Kazan was this building. We expected more. The Moscque has very big wood external doors with nice wood crafting. Inside is empy. There is no possibility to pay for audio gude so we only can have working to different lewels without undestanding means otherwise detail of interior.

This is a very grand mosque with beautifully decorated details. There are multiple floors for praying, one for men, another one for women. You can see it from outside and inside. There are special people singing Koran throughout the whole day. Definitely a place to visit for a cultural education

I saw a lot of mosques in UAE, Turkey, Kazakhstan, but this mosque anyway looks different. It's better to visit in evening time due to the booster light.

One of the most beautiful mosques I've ever seen! The inside of the mosque is worth a visit as well. I found the people working at the mosque to be very friendly and kind to visitors. It was fascinating to see the reading of the Koran being done (happening 24 hours a day since January 2015).
