Carriage of Catherine II

One of the more interesting monuments on the pedestrian Bauman street is the carriage of Catherine II. This is a cast-iron replica of the carriage which the Empress used when passing through Kazan in 1767. It is believed that this carriage has magical powers: if, sitting in the carriage, you make a wish to travel somewhere and visualize it, it will certainly come true.

Historical reference

To show gratitude for Kazan’s hospitality, Catherine presented the city with two gifts: a carriage and a galley. Unfortunately only the carriage survived until present day. The original is in the National Museum of the Republic of Tatarstan.
