Private Jet Charter

Russia

Touch down at the Kazan airport in your private charter flight and you’ll be minutes from the city centre, just 16 miles away.

Driving towards your hotel you’ll note a city built on the convergence of two rivers, the Volga and the Kazanka.
Known as the Third Capital of Russia, this highly industrialised city is famous for its sporting legends in tennis, football, and ice skating alongside some of its more well-known landmarks including the beautiful Kul Sharif Mosque, found in the walls of Kazan’s Kremlin.

Home to the Tartars, who conquered parts of Russia during the Middle Ages, you’ll see signs in both Russian and the local dialect.

Find your base at the Kazan Palace, a traditional building on the outside housing an art nouveau interior. Or stay in the heart of the city at the Double Tree by Hilton. Minutes from the Kazan Historical Centre and two kilometres from the Kazan Kremlin, this hotel also offers a fine restaurant, fitness centre, and suites to choose from.

This vibrant and creative city is a true melting pot of cultures. You’ll find food, art, and entertainment to suit every taste and wallet. And this is a city of 24-hour fun.

After a visit to the Kremlin and Mosque, a trip to the Cathedral is well worth your time. Or if you’re in need of some calm try a trip to the nearby Blue Lakes. A private tour will take you to some of the more prominent museums.

In the evening, head out for an early cocktail at the highly secretive Mr Willard, a bar for Kazan’s in-crowd. When dinner beckons try the Hemingway restaurant. Famous for its seafood but equally at home serving meaty and vegetarian options. The friendly service and great wine selection ticks all the boxes.

For a taste of the region, head to Tatarskaya Usadba or Tatar Manor, a spacious yet cosy venue offering outside seating in the summer. The menu offers traditional Tatar dishes alongside European cuisine, and you can easily combine your visit with an overnight stay at the onsite hotel.

Getting around the city is as easy as jumping in your hire car, or using the metro, trams or trolleybuses. All serve the city adequately and run until around midnight.

Visitors flock to Kazan between May and September, when temperatures reach their peak of around 25°C. Outside of these times the winters are long and cold but, like so much of Russia, Kazan’s Kremlin covered in a blanket of thick snow is a spectacular sight to behold and well worth a day added to your Russian itinerary.
