Chistopol

   
 
 

Chistopol, the old provincial town of the 18th century, 'is located 144 km from Kazan, on the left bank of the Kama river. This is a living museum in which the streets and houses still keep the spirit of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Walking down the streets of Chistopol will give you a feeling of exploring the poetic and quiet beauty of provincial Russia. Melnikov's House, Uspensky Monastery and Nikolsky Cathedral, among other landmarks of the town, reflect the dedication and creative passion of their builders. Here you can find outstanding monumental works of the Muslims, Old Believers and the Orthodox. The town has its own museum and the Museum of Boris Pasternak.

Several kilometres from Chistopol lie the remains of Juketau, the town of the Volga Bulgar Kingdom that was built in Pre-Mongol times and became one of its trade centres.
