Description

2 hours walking tour around Sviyazhsk Island. The island town which, according to legend, was praised by Pushkin in ‘The Tale of Tsar Saltan’ erected by Ivan the Terrible after several attempts to conquer Kazan. Sviyazhsk is worth a visit for those wanting to experience the atmosphere of medieval Russia. Sviyazhsk architecture, among others, features 16th century churches built without a single nail, and a building with stone walls 3 meters thick. At ‘Konniy Dvor’, goes horseback riding, or visit ‘Leniviy Torzhok’ which regularly organizes folk festivities and knight battles. Museums on the island will tell you about the town’s past during the times of the Civil and Patriotic Wars in which 70% of local residents died, as well as the locals’ way of life in the Middle Ages.

However, immersion into its history is not the only reason to visit Sviyazhsk; the island town towers over the Volga, and provides an excellent opportunity to see the beauty of Tatarstan's nature.
