A grand awesome palace of weddings is located in the center of Kazan, on the right bank of the Kazanka river against the face of the Kazan Kremlin. The opening ceremony took place in 2013,  it was there that 27 marriages were registered the day before the opening of the 27th World Summer Universiade.  

The building resembles an enormous, rich in ornament kazan (pot), embodying the name of the city and being another visiting card of Kazan. The palace of weddings has several halls. Interiors of one of them symbolize the epoch of the Great Volga Bulgaria, the other — the Kazan Khanate period, the third hall is decorated in classicist style. Three great halls allow to hold daily up to 100 wedding ceremonies. Family well-being  is guarded by sculpture of the winged Leopards and Zilantes (winged serpents), set outside the palace.

The main feature of the «Kazan» Family Center is a two-level observation deck at an altitude of 32 meters. Here visitors can view a delightful panorama to the historic center of Kazan. Here you can not only ceremoniously register marriage, but also view the Kazan Kremlin with its internal structures, see the riverbed of the Kazanka river, the broad smooth surface of the Volga river and the Kremlin embankment, illuminated by thousands of lights in the evening time.  

The area around the «Kazan» Family Cente is a multi-level park dotted with greenery and flower beds, benches, walking paths, and on the spacious lawn guests organize picnics, play ball or badminton and just relax. Various festivals and concerts are held here, in the time of folk festivals the «Kazan» Family Center becomes the major attraction for many families of Kazan, residents and visitors of the city.
