Kazan City is home to a unique relic of the past: an abandoned TU-144 Super-Sonic passenger jet in the backyard on the outskirts of town. This Soviet-era aircraft was once part of Aeroflot's fleet and served as the first commercial supersonic transport plane, reaching speeds of up to 2,000 km/h. Although it has been retired for decades, its presence still evokes a sense of nostalgia for those who remember its glory days and marvel at its impressive engineering feats. Its rusting body stands as a reminder of Kazan's rich aviation history and serves as a conversation starter for locals and visitors alike.
