Kazan (Russian: Казань, Kazan Tatar: Казан, Qazán) is the capital and largest city of the Republic of Tatarstan in the Russian Federation. The city lies along the Volga River at the confluence of Kazanka, and has a population of 1,143,546 (census preliminary 2010), making it the eighth largest city in Russia with a metropolitan area of 1.57 million. The city was founded in 1005 as a frontier fort on the north by the Volga Bulgars. In 1438 it was captured by the Golden Horde and established the Khanate of Kazan Tatar. A series of wars with Moscow principality eventually led to the capture of Kazan by Ivan the Terrible's troops in 1552, followed by the destruction of much of the city and the relocation of the Tatars in the swampy shores of Lake Kaban. Kazan suffered several serious fires and after one of them, in 1579, was discovered Our Lady of Kazan icon. Kazan is one of the main economic, political, scientific, educational, cultural and sports centers in the country. The "Historic and Architectural Complex of the Kazan Kremlin" is included by UNESCO within the World Heritage Site. [1].
