On March 29, an excursion around Kazan was organized for foreign students of KIU who arrived in Russia recently. The excursion was organized by KIU students studying in the direction of "Tourism". The interpreter was Rodriguez Maldonado Alfredo Jose, a first-year undergraduate student of the Russian as a Foreign Language program. The tour covered all the most iconic places in the center of Kazan.
The guys told the foreign students a brief history of the main streets and showed all their sights. Then the students walked over the bridge over the Bulak River, where they were told about the origin of the name of the river and about all the bridges passing through it. Continuing the route, the guys reached Musa Jalil Street. Here they got acquainted with Saint Peter and Paul Cathedral, and also learned the history of the development of the street as a whole.
Of particular interest to foreign citizens was the monument to the Kazan Cat and its history associated with cats and Empress Elizabeth Petrovna. Further along the Kremlin Street, one of the main streets of Kazan, the students reached the end point - the Kazan Kremlin - a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The student guides told in detail the history of one of the main attractions not only of the city, but also of the republic. Students learned about each cultural object located on the territory of the Kremlin: Spasskaya Tower, Söyembikä Tower, Annunciation Cathedral, Kul Sharif Mosqu, etc.
Foreign students really enjoyed the tour and were happy to get to know its sights more deeply.
