Its famed fortress, built on the orders of Ivan the Terrible and noted for containing a striking five-domed cathedral, serves as the area's major tourist attraction, inscribed on the World Heritage List. The meeting point of Slavic and Tatar ethnicities, Kazan boasts as many Christian church towers as Islamic minarets.
