Three stories were captured in the most touristic spots of Kazan. The orthodox icon museum attendants rigorously prevent the artefacts from being kissed. However, to the genuine believers, they will readily show the standpoint, from which you can see an icon smile back at you. A fellow from Lisbon comes to see his relatives in Russia and they try their best to organise the best vacation for him. Apparently, they don't agree on the idea of a perfect chill out. Students from China taste Tatar echpochmaks and learn how to bless with a cross, however, it’s not enough for them to break the ice with Russia.
