Söyembikä Tower
Another quirky feature of Kazan is Söyembikä Tower. Legend has it that it had to be constructed in a week as a condition set by Queen Söyembikä - the last ruler of Kazan - for marrying Ivan the Terrible. Having completed it in the time she threw herself off the 55 metre tower instead of having to face marriage. The tower is slanted owing to various theories and myths such as the above missive. #views #art #free #architecture
