Pictures from Kazan

We had a really busy with homework and tests so I didn't have much time to go out and explore the city this week. I thought I would take the time to post some random pictures of things around the city I have seen but haven't posted since I got here! 


The obligatory statue of Lenin in Freedom Square. Behind him is the building for the Parliament of the Republic of Tatarstan.

This is the Tatar State Humanitarian-Pedagogical University with a statue of  Salikh Saidashev, a Tatar composer.

St. Peter and Paul Cathedral which is right down the street from my institute but I haven't had a chance to go inside yet!
 
The banks of Lake Kuban 



A statue of Pushkin and bust of Tolstoy....only the latter actually lived in Kazan!



The picture on the left is signifying a manhole which is a "luk" in Russian...and the graffiti underneath it says "I am your father"! So wonderful to see Star Wars references on the street in Kazan! The picture on the right is for a showing of a Film that was made based off of the Paris, Je t'aime and New York, I love you movies...my sister loves those movies so I thought I would post something on it! I am going to try and see it while I am here!
