They are normal sized windows. All the other buildings seem to have much larger windows or in the case of this building a door that opens to a balcony.

This is not Russian architecture, but your native Tatar. Kazan is the capital of Tatarstan.

My native is not Tartar. Where did that come from? It is Russian architecture. I know because I am an architect myself. Thanks for the info though.

Actually not excellent. It has major proportion problems but it is not too bad either It was constructed in 2013. There were rundown buildings. They destroyed them and built that at the same place.

Russia is a multinational state. In addition to Russians in Russia there are over 100 peoples. Tatar ethnic group belongs to the Turkic group. Kazan is the capital of the Tatar autonomy. In Kazan are mainly Tatar architects.
