About Tartarstan

Tatarstan is situated at the confluence of two large rivers – the Volga and the Kama, being a kind of bridge connecting Russia’s European and Asian parts. Covering an area of 67,800 km2, the republic is approximately the same size as Ireland.

Throughout many centuries, Tatars (53,2%) and Russians (39,7%), Chuvashes and Udmurts, Mordovians and Maris, Ukrainians and Bashkirs - altogether representatives of more than 173 ethnic origins – have lived together in Tatarstan. Today, its population is 3.8 million.

Tatarstan is a developing region, with its success being based on economic stability. The republic is an oil production and petrochemical center, manufacturing KAMAZ heavy-duty trucks and Mi helicopters and has a large agricultural production.

As a meeting point of civilizations, a symbolic crossroads of Eastern and Western, Asian and European religious and cultural traditions, Tatarstan has accumulated extensive experience in maintaining inter-ethnic and inter-faith accord. This experience serves as a perfect background for the republic to develop its contacts with the world, building on trade- and scientific links.
