Kazansky Railway Station
Kazansky Railway Station is located on Komsomolskaya (former Kalanchevskaya) square and recognized as the largest in Russia, its area is 120 000 sq.m. and it serves over 100 000 passengers daily. The main buildings of the station were constructed in 1913-1926 by the project of architect Alexey Shchusev in the style of Russian national architecture, with a 73-meter high tower in the center. The high tower is the dominant station, the model for which became the Söyembikä Tower (also transliterated as Syuyumbike) tower of the Kazan Kremlin. The spire of the tower is crowned with the figure of the serpent Zilant - the ancient symbol of Kazan.
Due to the scale of the station, it is able to serve three directions at once: East (Kazan, Yekaterinburg, and points beyond, the routes of the Trans-Siberian Railway) and South-East (Ryazan, the rout to Kazakhstan), and South (Adler).
