Islam-Memorial-in-Bulgari-near-Kazan.jpgIslam is considered as one of Russias traditional religions, legally a part of Russian historical heritage. Kazan is the biggest Islamic city in the northern hemisphere and also known as Russian Islam capital. Ancient Bolgar Kazan culture was not only in contact with Russian culture, but also at times united with it.
Archbishop Germogen of Kazan wrote: "Many Rus-captives and non-captives live with the Tatars, and the Tcheremis and drink with them and eat from the same bowl and 31 married to them". The City of Kazan keeps the tradition of Tatars culture and friendship between Islam and Christian people. It was also chosen to be a start point of a mobile festival between Muslim regions in Russia and other States of the Muslim world.
The city was founded in the beginning of the 10th century as a fortified stronghold of the Volga Bulgar people, but no one knows exactly where the city's name originates from. The most popular legend about the city name origin is the word "kazan", which is the Tatar for "kettle".
