Речной порт, Казань

The river port in Kazan important for tourists not primarily as a transport hub and as a place where you can catch taxis and tour boats to popular attractions of Tatarstan: Sviyazhsk and Bolgar the Great. The starting point for pleasure boats with a guided tour for two hours along the city's shores. You can still make trips to villages and villages on the banks of the Volga Tatarstan Tetyushi, Pechishchi, Verkhniy Uslon, etc. But rather just a walk nothing to do, as there is nothing touristic in the country.

As for the regular ships, long distance, these do not go here, and, accordingly, to get on the water to the Kazan river through the port of other cities on the Volga river impossible. However, there are cruise ships along the Volga, which make a tour stop in Kazan. To purchase these cruise tours is in the travel agencies of the Volga and other cities.

Unfortunately, today the river fleet of Kazan is in a deplorable condition: a little flight, a canceled. At the beginning of season 2017, even canceled a two-hour pleasure flight due to the lack of fleet. The huge building of the river station is not being used and empty, and the purchase of tickets at the box office is located in a small modular pavilions next.

Solved the problem of "where to go and where to start" in Kazan booked an excursion,it is not so and has the money,but a lot informative.Travel on the bus trips,all that is seen outside the window is telling you.Think in terms of when you want to know more about the city and its history excursions are quite the right choice.Of course it all depends on the guide,because is not the first time I face it,were not very successful it is necessary to choose.In Kazan took kazantravel pretty decent.Friends also went with them,the poor said nothing.All Kazan for a couple of days to know a city rich in history and itself is quite small,but I think this year will make up for everything missed in the past! ...
