Bulgar like a magnet attracts everyone who is interested in the past – this is a city-history that visually illustrates the development of Islam in Russia.
During the excursion you will see such attractions as the Cathedral Mosque, the Eastern and Northern Mausoleums, the Khan Tomb, the Small Minaret, the Black Chamber, the White Chamber, the Khan’s Bath and numerous archaeological sites. Not far from the southern gates of Bolgar is the complex “Ak Machet”. In translation means “White Mosque”. The building of the mosque is crowned with three domes and two minarets and resembles the Indian Taj Mahal.
