I. Metshin about the place of Kazan in the community of European cities
the support of the republican and federal government, is consistently moving
towards integrating deeper into the global world and finding its worthy place
in the community of European cities.
it's very difficult for us to compete with European cities, such as Strasbourg,
with their incredible atmosphere and cultural background. However, Kazan is a
city, which is absorbing and adapting the best ideas from around the world.
uniqueness of our city lies in the fact that it is on the road that connected
East and West more than three thousand years ago. Merchant cargoes went along
this path but it was important not only for the development of the economy.
Culture, traditions, and lifestyle of the West and the East met on this road.
And Kazan has long been considered the place of their meeting.
