Kazan in legends

  • Legends About City Foundation
    Once upon a time a khan decided to build a city. "Where shall we build it?" he asked his people. One of them said: "Let’s fill a kettle (kazan) with water, put it on a cart, make fire under the kettle and ride horses. Where the kettle boils, that’s where we shall build a city". So they did. The kettle boiled on the territory of modern Kazan. They say, that is where the city was built.
  • Legends about Sujumbike
    ...Once Ivan the Terrible heard about unbelievable beauty of the tsarina Sujumbike and sent his matchmakers to Kazan. The majestic beauty refused the Russian tsar. Then Ivan the Terible decided to use force - he brought a huge army to Kazan and besieged the city. In order to save the citizens, Sujumbike agreed to marry him, on condition that the Russian tsar should build a tall tower in Kazan in 7 days
