The capital of the Republic of Tatarstan - Kazan welcomes its guests by showing one of its symbols - the old station building on the Forecourt. And this unusual structure is asking for a postcard, which looks like a small castle, the red brick walls of which attract attention from afar.

On the sign hanging at the entrance, you can read that it has republican significance and is protected by the state. And it is not surprising, because it was built in the nineteen-hundredth year. The entrance to the building itself is guarded by quite friendly-looking plaster statues of white leopards. This is another symbol of the republic, which is even present on its coat of arms.
