Astronomical Observatories of Kazan Federal University
The Astronomical Observatories of Kazan Federal University are two properties that show the transformation from classical astronomy to modern astrophysics.
The Observatory of Kazan Imperial University (19th century) is located in the historical center of Kazan, while the Engelhardt Astronomical Observatory (1901) lies in the countryside. The latter was specially designed for large-scale observations and studies under the conditions most suitable for night observations.
Community Perspective: a 'near miss' for many, as the Kazan Observatory lies right in the city center very close to the already inscribed Kazan Kremlin. The site has stayed unreviewed so far.
