We have spent several wonderful days in Xi’an city in September 2019.Despite the rain, the city showed all the beautiful sides. Within a few minutesin Xi’anwe were caught-up in its magic and totally charmed by its sights. It is so interesting that the cities of Kazan and Xi'an have much in common: unique cultural and traditions, with a rich historical heritage, with many outstanding buildings, architectural monuments, sights and historical places.
Both cities have UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and the city authorities pay great attention to the restoration and preservation of monuments. We admired the Mausoleum of the First Qin Emperor- this you have to see and experience to believe it. The center of Xi’an is captured by wonderful illumination, walls and buildings look spectacular.
Shopping streets, pagodas and pedestrian areas are also full of colorful lights. But the greatest wealth of the city are its people: very hospitable and kind. We hope that friendship between Kazan and Xi’an cities will allow us to learn each other better. Needless to say that Xi’an is a city that should be in everyone’s must visit list, at least once in a lifetime.
