    by Nuclei

One of the landmarks of Kazan Kremlin and Kazan city.

There are many stories behind the tower and most famous one is almost exactly the same story of Maiden Tower of Baku, Azerbaijan. Suyumbike is a beautiful lady and Ivan the Terrible wants to marry her. But Suyumbike dos want to marry him and puts an unreasonable request. She wants Ivan to buid a tower in only 7 days. But Ivan manages it and Suyumbike is dissapointed. Show climbs to the top of the tower and throws herself.

The tower is seven-tier building made of red brick. It is 58 metres high and 1,98 meters heel.
