What to expect

More than 700 years ago, on the site of the current city of Bolgar, there was an ancient city, the capital of Volga Bulgaria, an early feudal state located between the Volga and Kama rivers. Today the historical and archaeological site of Bolgar is included in the list of UNESCO world heritage sites.

During the tour, you will walk through the remains of the white stone walls of ancient buildings to imagine the life that reigned here many centuries ago and see all the sights of the ancient city left on the territory: the Mosque, the Eastern and Northern mausoleums, the Khan's Mausoleum, the Small Minaret, the black chamber, the white chamber, the Baths of the Khan and the Khan's Palace.

You will visit the Museum of Bulgarian civilization on the Volga embankment, a memorial sign built to commemorate the official adoption of Islam by the ancient Bulgarians and where the world's largest printed Koran is kept.

You will also see the new sights of Bolgar: one of the most significant structures included in the modern collections of Tatarstan's architectural heritage, the AK mosque (White mosque).
