A modern Classical palace in Russia and more images from around the world


Shepherd’s warning


Kazan’s Palace of Farmers houses the Tatarstan food and agriculture department and features winged snow leopards, the symbol of the republic

I took this picture of the Palace of Farmers during a three-day trip, as I watched the sun rise from the 16th-century Kazan Kremlin in the heart of the city. The observation deck gave a beautiful view of Kazan and the majestic palace, which was built between 2008–2010, but borrows elements from Classical architecture.

Looking at this photo takes me right back to that dawn.
