«Kazan» Family Centre is a unique building with an unusual architectural style. It is located on the right bank of the Kazanka River opposite the Kazan Kremlin. Kazan locals call it 'the Bowl' because its shape reminds a bowl or a copper, and that is not a coincidence. According to popular legends, the name ‘Kazan’ is derived from the Tatar word 'kazan', meaning 'a copper' or 'a bowl'.
The roof of the Centre is one of the best observation platforms in Kazan. From here you can enjoy a magnificent view to the Kazan Kremlin and other sights; it is a popular venue for newlyweds and tourists. The platform has two levels and is located at the height of 32 meters above the ground.
Around the Family Centre are several statues of snow leopards and zilants that are supposed to guard the newly married couples from troubles and hardships. The surrounding area is full of green lawns and lanes for walks and cycling. A short way away from the Centre you will find a boat landing where you can rent boats and catamarans.
