Boat tours on Volga from Kazan



Sviyazhsk is an ancient fortress, built in 1551 by famous Russian Tsar Ivan the Terrible for the siege of Kazan. Building of Sviyazhsk is a remarkable event in the history of Russian construction. The timber was originally felled and the fortress constructed in the forests of central Russia thousands of kilometers from the site where the fortress lies today. The fortress was dismantled and delivered on rafts via the Volga to the mouth of Sviyaga-river (twenty five kilometers from Kazan) and then assembled within four weeks on the site where it remains today. Sviyazhsk-fortress quickly became recognized as the best example of fortification construction of its time. From the second half of the XVI century until the end of the XVII century Sviyazhsk was the administrative, trade and Christian centre of Russians in the east.

Journey: The whole trip takes about 6 hours from Kazan.

When? All year-round depending on interest.
