Sabantuy is one of the most beloved holidays of Tatarstan locals, and it commences when all sowing on the fields has been completed. During the holiday, a carefree atmosphere of fun rules, Tatar music reigns from all over, and tents burst with refreshments. Here you can fight with bags filled with hay, run over a narrow log or participate in an egg and spoon race holding the spoon in your mouth, as well as watch the ‘Koresh’ belt wrestling tournaments. This year, the big Kazan Sabantuy will be timed to run alongside the FIFA World Cup.
