Feodor Chaliapin Monument
The monument to the legendary opera singer Feodor Chaliapin stands on Bauman Street next to the Epiphany Cathedral. Its bell tower contains the Chaliapin Chamber Hall and a small museum about the life and work of the singer. The hotel situated next door is also named after the famous singer. The monument depicts a singer saying goodbye to his native city. Chaliapin often returned back here, to his native land in between tours to see his friends. Since 1982, an international Chaliapin festival is regularly held in Kazan where famous musicians come from all over the world to share their music.
The monument was erected in 1998 near the Epiphany Cathedral, where the singer was baptized. Irina Borisovna - the granddaughter of the singer praised the sculptor Andrei Balashov for his skill of the remarkably life-like bronze figure at the unveiling.
