Kazan Became Russian Official Gastronomic Capital

Kazan was officially recognized as the gastronomic capital of Russia. Now the city has a corresponding trademark, as stated by the director of the city’s Tourism Development Committee Daria Sannikova. The idea was supported by the Mayor of Kazan Ilsur Metshin.  

“We submitted documents for brand registration back in January last year. On January 20, 2021, the trademark was received and henceforth the city of Kazan, in addition to the third capital of Russia, bears the proud title of the country’s gastronomic capital,” Sannikova explained.

According to Sannikova, gastronomic tourism is one of the promising areas for the development of the city. Today in Kazan there are 2,045 catering establishments, including those that offer dishes of national cuisine. It is noted that at the moment, the basis for the formation of gastronomic tours in Kazan has already been created, and the received status will help to effectively promote them. It is also specified that the trademark will be valid until January 2030.
