Ekiyat Tatar Puppet Theatre

The new building of the theatre built in 2012 has already become one of the city's main attractions. With its stained-glass windows, white stone turrets and columns, it looks like a big fairytale castle. The theatre repertoire consists of over 50 performances, based on national tales of different countries around the world as well as modern works.
