The Kremlin Embankment is a fairly recent landmark in Kazan, which has become a favourite place of rest and entertainment for locals as it is one of the most beautiful places to spend time at in the city. The comfortable coastal zone stretches from the walls of the Kazan Kremlin to the "Kazan" National Cultural Centre. The embankment is divided into two zones - a pedestrian area and a second, entertainment lane. In summer, this second lane is used for those on bicycles, rollerblades and longboards, while in winter, the lane turns into the longest ice rink in Europe. No matter the season, you can rent any items you need to enjoy your time here. From the Kremlin embankment, you can get a great view of the Kremlin, the 'Kazan' Wedding Hall and the Farmers Palace both day and night any time of year. Winter is especially beautiful when the embankment turns into a fairy tale wonderland, where you might be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of Ded Moroz (the Russian Santa Clause) and his helper elves. There is always something happening here - the embankment hosts fairs, sports competitions, dance master classes and much more. A workout zone has been installed here for sports enthusiasts, and if you get hungry, a large choice of restaurants awaits - Love Story, La Famiglia, Mio, Chirem, Pirs and Bakhcha are all located here.
