With a safety rating of nearly 65%, Kazan is a very safe city, because local government and police really take care about the high safety level in the capital of Tatarstan Republic.
SafeAround has gathered information from different trustworthy sources, to make sure you have a safe trip and be aware of all potential danger.
City CenterThe so-called “Bermuda Triangle” of Kazan between the streets: Profsoyuznaya, Kremlevskaya, Bauman and Pravobulachnaya, where most of the crimes occur. Here, the largest number of clubs are concentrated, where young people are drawn from all around the city, thus we recommend visitors to avoid these streets at night time. During the day you can walk around calmly, without fear of being robbed. Also, we recommend avoiding visiting the club called “Arena”, because of the high frequency of hassles in this place.
SuburbsWe highly recommend avoiding Zhilploshchadka, part of the Moscow district, because of its shady reputation and high frequency of crimes.
