Millennium Park

Located in the center of town, along Lake Kazan, Millennium Park was founded in 2005 during the city’s millennial celebration.

Earlier this place was Degtyarnaya Ulitsa (Degtyarnaya Street) with dilapidated houses. The park is surrounded by a metal fence, its gates are decorated with the city's symbols – Zilant dragons. In the centre, there is a fountain made out of a huge cauldron, supported by Zilant figures. It is an illustration of one of the legends of how Kazan came to be, according to which it was founded, where a cauldron of water boiled on its own. Wedding processions like to come to the fountain, the bride and the groom throw in a coin and make a wish.
