You will meet with your guide and your driver at the lobby of your hotel. After a comfortable drive, you will admire the surprising architectural structure of the «Universal Temple» on the old Moscow Highway, whose construction began in 1994.
The Universal Temple is an architectural symbolic symbiosis of religions, civilizations and cultures.
Walk around the monuments of many different religious: Catholic, Orthodox, and Buddhist temples, a Mosque, and a Synagogue.
Then move to the Raifa Virgin Monastery located 30 Km from Kazan in a sanctuary forest, on a bank of an enchantingly beautiful lake. The monastery was founded in the 17th century.
You will appreciate its architectural ensemble, one of the most magnificent in the Middle Volga, which was shaped for centuries. The main relic of the monastery is a wonderworking Georgian image of the Most Holy Virgin (17th century). In the monastery, there is a spring of water consecrated by the Patriarch of Moscow and Russia.
