Among the buildings of post-war modernism in Kazan, one can find the best examples of Soviet architecture of those years. The large public buildings that appeared then largely shaped the appearance of the city, formed new ensembles, and were successfully integrated into the landscape. Thus, the circus building that attracts attention with its unusual shape and the adjacent Central Stadium were designed to organize the coastal zone without distracting attention from the Kazan Kremlin complex. The building of the Physics Faculty (now the Institute of Physics) of KFU has become the high-rise dominant of the historical part of the city, and the Tatar Academic Theater named after Galiaskar Kamal is spectacularly staged on the shore of Lake Kaban.
