Kazan city sightseeing tour from a bird's eye view

Entry to the Basketball Hall, where Kazan’s Unics team plays, is free, and for entry to the TatNeft Arena, where the Ak Bars ice hockey team plays its home matches, there’s a nominal charge of 1 euro. The old ice stadium hosts figure skating competitions, and there is indoor skating for everyone interested in each district.
