But construction of new segment between "Kremlyovskaya" ("Kazan Kremlin") and "Kozya Sloboda" ("Goat Settlement") was not fully completed after the opening of the latter station. There was opened only one entrance to the "Kozya Sloboda" station. The three other entrances, including two entrances at the opposite part of Decembrists street, were not opened. The construction of the underpass under the Decembrists street was not finished in 2010.

In addition, the general problem was increasing of the time intervals between trains after the opening of new station. The lenght of the new section (from "Kremlyovskaya" to "Kozya Sloboda") is 2.7 km, the longest in the Kazan Metro. The total lenght of the Kazan Metro is 11.0 km. In 2010, there were only five Metro trains in Kazan, one of which was in repairment. Therefore, in the beginning of 2011 time intervals increased from 7 till 11-12 minutes.

Before 2011, there were used only five 4-carriages "Kazan" trains (type 81-553.3/554.3/555.3). These trains were made in 2004-2005 especially for Kazan Metro by St. Petersburg "Wagonmash" company in cooperation with "Škoda Dopravn technika" (Plzeň, Czech Republic). Czech company made 3-phase asynchronous motors for these trains.

Interior of "Kazan" train:

In the end of 2010, it was decided to buy three 3-carriages "Rusich" trains (model 81-740/741, type 81-740.4/741.4). These trains were made "Metrowagonmash" company in Mytishchi town near Moscow. Therefore, Kazan Metro become third world subway, where became to use this models of trains (after Moscow Metro and Sofia Metro). The length of those "Rusich" carriages is about 1.5 times longer than length of the carriages of "Kazan" train (head carriage - 28.15 m vs 19.85 m, intermediate carriage - 27.2 m vs 18.8 m). Therefore, 3-carriages "Rusich" train have more length and capacity than 4-carriages "Kazan" train.

The price of the three 81-740.4/741.4 trains was 700 thousand rubles (~22 thousand USD). The first of three trains was delivered in Kazan on January 28, 2011 and become to operate in Kazan Metro since February 16, 2011. The two other trains were delivered in Kazan on February 26, 2011 and become to operate in Kazan Metro since March 14 and March 28, 2011. On November 7, 2011 one "Kazan" train began to operate after repairment. Currently, there are 8 Metro trains in Kazan (five - "Kazan" and three - "Rusich"), six of which are used daily. As result, time intervals were decreased till 5 minutes in rush hours.

January 28, 2011. First "Rusich" train was delivered in Kazan:

In contrast to decreasing of time intervals, the problem with the construction of additional exits from "Kozya Sloboda" station has not been resolved as quick as it was planned. Originally it was planned to open all entrances in the winter of 2011. But by September 2011, there was opened only one entrance. The second entrance at the same side of Decembrists street wasn't opened due to low passenger traffic at this place. Two entrances at the other side of Decembrists street were not opened due to problems with construction of the underpass under the street. But finally on September 6, 2011 was opened second entrance, on September 22, 2011 were opened third and fourth entrances. All four entrances connected with new underpass under the Decembrists street.

FURTHER DEVELOPMENT - 2012-2013:

In the near future Kazan will be host of the many various major sport competitions:
- 2013 Summer Universiade (July 6-17),
- 2015 World Aquatics Championships (summer),
- 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup (June),
- 2018 FIFA World Cup (June 8 – July 8).

As part of preparation to the hosting of sport events, audio information in Metro trains started to sound at three languages - Russian, Tatar and English.



Kazan Metro have largest federal funding among all Russian Metro systems. To the 2013 Summer Universiade, they plan to extend Central Line to north with three new stations - "Dekabristov", "Moskovskaya" and "Aviastroitelnaya". The construction of this segment began in late-2009. In 2011, they spent 11.5 billion rubles (~ 370 mln. USD) on Metro construction, including 10.5 billion rubles from federal budget. By 2012, they dug three of six tunnels and started construction of three other tunnels. They will spend 17.5 billion rubles from federal budget on the construction of the stations till mid-2013. They plan to finish construction of all tunnels in the second half of 2012. Three stations planned to be opened on May 9 (Victory Day), for two months before the start of 2013 Summer Universiade. The length of the future segment is 4.817 km. After the opening of three stations, the length of Central Line will be 15.822 km.


Urbanrail

The current situation is follow:
Red circles - current 7 stations; yellow circles - 3 stations under construction; grey circle - planned station;
Red lines - completed tunnels; yellow lines - tunnels which now under construction; grey lines - planned tunnels.



"DEKABRISTOV":

"Dekabristov" ("Decembrists") is a future station on the Central Line 1 of the Kazan Metro. It will be located at the intersection of the Decembrists street, Shamil Usmanov street and Volgograd street, in the Moskovsky District.

Station "Dekabristov" will be serve residents of nearest living massives as well as large Moscow Market, located nearby. The station will be located near future stop of Kazan Rapid Tram. Also, in the near future there will be built interchange to the station "Volgogradskaya" ("Volgograd") of the future Savinovskaya Line 2.

The construction works began in August 2010. In May 2011 Decembrists street was closed for road movement. The cars began to ride by the temporary bypass roads. On November 24, 2011 was started construction of the left tunnel (1.36 km) between "Dekabristov" and "Kozya Sloboda" stations with using of TBM "Haysılu" ("Moonlight beauty"). On December 29, 2011 was started construction of the right tunnel between these two stations with using of TBM "Altın" ("The golden-haired girl").

"Dekabristov" will be shallow single-vaulted station. It will be built with two underground vestibules and four exits. Northern vestibule planned to be combined with vestibule of the future station "Volgogradskaya". It will be have two exits at the intersection of the Decembrists street, Shamil Usmanov street and Volgograd street. The southern vestibule will be have two exits near intersection of Decembrists street and Tver street.

The station is named for Decembrists street, which located nearby. This street was named after Decembrists - the participants of the Decembrist Revolt on December 26, 1825. Russian Army officers led about 3000 soldiers in a protest against Nicholas I's assumption of the throne after his elder brother Constantine removed himself from the line of succession. Because these events occurred in December, the rebels were called the Decembrists. This uprising, which was suppressed by Nicholas I, took place in the Senate Square in Saint Petersburg. In 1925, to mark the centenary of the event, the square was renamed as Decembrists Square, but in 2008 it reverted to its original name.

When Russian Emperor Alexander I died on December 1, 1825, the royal guards swore allegiance to the presumed heir, Alexander's brother Constantine. When Constantine made his renunciation public, and Nicholas stepped forward to assume the throne, the Northern Society acted. With the capital in temporary confusion, and one oath to Constantine having already been sworn, the society scrambled in secret meetings to convince regimental leaders not to swear allegiance to Nicholas. These efforts would culminate in the Decembrist Revolt. The leaders of the society (many of whom belonged to the high aristocracy) elected Prince Sergey Trubetskoy as interim dictator.

On the morning of 26 December, a group of officers commanding about 3000 men assembled in Senate Square, where they refused to swear allegiance to the new Emperor, Nicholas I, proclaiming instead their loyalty to Constantine and the Constitution. They expected to be joined by the rest of the troops stationed in Saint Petersburg, but they were disappointed. The revolt was further hampered when it was deserted by its supposed leader Prince Trubetskoy, who had a last minute change of heart, and failed to turn up at the Square. His second in command, Colonel Alexander Bulatov also vanished from the scene. After a hurried consultation the rebels appointed Prince Eugene Obolensky as a replacement leader.

For long hours there was a stand-off between the 3000 rebels and the 9000 loyal troops stationed outside the Senate Building, with some desultory shooting from the rebel side. Also on the scene was a vast crowd of civilian on-lookers who began fraternizing with the rebels but who were not called on to participate in the action by the leaders of the revolt. Eventually Nicholas, the new Emperor, appeared in person, at the square, and sent Count Mikhail Miloradovich, a military hero who was greatly respected by ordinary soldiers, to parley with the rebels. While delivering a speech, Miloradovich was shot and fatally wounded by officer Pyotr Kakhovsky. At the same time, a rebelling grenadier squad, led by lieutenant Nikolay Panov, entered the Winter Palace but failed to seize it and retreated.

After spending most of the day in fruitless attempts to parley with the rebel force, Nicholas ordered a cavalry charge which, however, slipped on the icy cobbles and retired in disorder. Eventually, at the end of the day, Nicholas ordered three artillery pieces to open fire, with devastating effect. To avoid the slaughter the rebels broke and ran. Some attempted to regroup on the frozen surface of the Neva River, to the north. However, here, also, they were targeted by the artillery and suffered many casualties. As the ice was broken by the cannon fire, many of the dead and dying were cast into the river. After a nighttime mopping-up operation by loyal army and police units, the revolt in the north came to an end.

The Decembrists were taken to the Winter Palace to be interrogated, tried, and convicted. Kakhovsky was executed by hanging together with four other leading Decembrists: Pavel Pestel; the poet Kondraty Ryleyev; Sergey Muravyov-Apostol; and Mikhail Bestuzhev-Ryumin. When the five Decembrists were hanged something unusual happened. The ropes that were being used to hang them parted before three of them actually died. This caused a sigh of relief in the crowd because, according to a centuries-old tradition, any condemned prisoner who survived a botched execution would be set free. Rather than free these prisoners, Nicholas ordered new ropes and the three prisoners were hanged again. This was the last public execution in Russian imperial history. Other Decembrists were exiled to Siberia, Kazakhstan, and the Far East.

Wives of many Decembrists followed their husbands into exile. The expression "Decembrist wife" is a Russian symbol of the devotion of a wife to her husband. Maria Volkonskaya, the wife of the Decembrist leader Sergey Volkonsky, notably followed her husband to his exile in Irkutsk. Sergey returned after thirty years of his exile had elapsed, though his titles and land remained under royal possession. Other exiles preferred to remain in Siberia after their sentences were served, preferring its relative freedom to the stifling intrigues of Moscow and St. Petersburg, and after years of exile there was not much for them to return to. Many Decembrists thrived in exile, in time becoming landowners and farmers. In later years, they would become the idols for the populist movement of the 1860s and the 1870s, where their advocacy for reform and their anti-serfdom platform established a great admiration for their actions, including the writer Leo Tolstoy.

With the failure of the Decembrists, Russia's Autocracy would continue for almost a century, although serfdom would be officially abolished in 1861. Though defeated, the Decembrists did effect some change on the regime. Their dissatisfaction forced Nicholas to turn his attention inward to address the issues of the empire. In 1826, a rehabilitated Mikhail Speransky began the task of codifying Russian law, a task that continued throughout Nicholas's reign. Anecdotally, after being defeated in the Crimean War, Nicholas is said to have lamented that his own entourage had treated him worse than the Decembrists ever had.

To some extent, the Decembrists were in the tradition of a long line of palace revolutionaries who wanted to place their candidate on the throne, but because the Decembrists also wanted to implement Classical Liberalism, their revolt has been considered the beginning of a revolutionary movement. The uprising was the first open breach between the government and reformist elements of the Russian nobility, which would subsequently widen.

The architect of this station is Azat Mustafin. The station will be decorated in the Classicism style, elegance and austerity of which is represent the purity and nobility of thoughts of Decembrists. The color solution of station is based on the contrast of the white and dark-brown tones of the natural stone and bronze color of the metal. This color solution emphasizing romanticism and drama of historical events related to December 1825. The track walls will be faced with dark-brown marble as well as with white marble of the 20 built-in columns with pilasters at the top. The floor will be paved with polished granite. The vault of the station will be decorated with bronze carved arches, which associated with epaulettes of officers of 19th century. The fixtures will be installed at the vault of station along the central axis. At the platform will be located three 8-seats benches with forged pattern at the back. At the track walls will be bronze indices with names of the stations. The vestibules will be decorated at the similar style.

FURTHER DEVELOPMENT - 2016-2018:

After completion of the construction at the Central Line 1, they plan to built another new line in direction to the football stadium, where will played FIFA World Cup 2018 matches.


Link

Originally it was declared that it will be Savinovskaya Line 2. Its first segment will be fully located at the right bank of the Kazanka River and will be pass though living massives of the Novosavinsky District - the most populated district in Kazan. Here planned to built five new stations with project names - "Volgogradskaya" ("Volgograd"; with intersection to the station "Dekabristov" of Line 1), "Park Pobedy" ("Victory Park"), "Prospect Yamasheva" ("Xsyen Yamaşev Avenue"), "Prospekt Amirhana" ("Fatix mirxan Avenue") and "Stadion" ("Stadium").

However, last year it was declared that it's more possible that there will be built other line in direction to the stadium, while Savinovskaya Line will be built later. It will be Privolzhskaya Line 3 between the historical centre and area near stadium via Kazanka River. Here planned to built four new stations with project names - "Sukonnaya Sloboda" ("Cloth Settlement"; with intersection to the Line 1), "Tsentralny Park" ("Central Park"), "Chistopolskaya" ("Chistopol") and "Adoratskogo" ("Vladimir Adoratsky"). Here are different opinions among Kazan residents on the question - "Which of two lines should to be built earlier?". The official decision is still not taken.

Early plans of Metro extension:

Wikipedia

New plans of Metro extension:
RED LINE - Central Line 1 (7 existing stations + 3 stations under construction);
BLUE LINE - Savinovskaya Line 2;
PURPLE LINE - Privolzhskaya Line 3;
GREEN LINE - Zanoksinskaya Line 4;
BLACK LINES - railways;
BLACK OVALS - lines, which planned to be built within 2013-2018 (one of two possible variants).

Early history

Samara is a city in southeastern part of European Russia, the Volga Federal District, at the confluence of the Volga and Samara Rivers. It's also the administrative center of Samara Region. Samara is located on the east bank of the Volga River, which acts as its western boundary; across the river are the Zhiguli Mountains, after which the local "Zhiguli" ("Zhigulyovskoye") beer is named. Its northern boundary is formed by the Sokolyi Hills and by the steppes in the south and east. The life of Samara's citizens has always been intrinsically linked to the Volga River, which has not only served as the main commercial thoroughfare of Russia throughout several centuries, but also has great visual appeal. Samara's river-front is one of the favorite recreation places for local citizens and tourists. After the Soviet novelist Vasily Aksyonov visited Samara, he remarked: "I am not sure where in the West one can find such a long and beautiful embankment. Possibly only around Lake Geneva".

Legend has it that Alexius, Metropolitan of Moscow, later Patron Saint of Samara, visited the site of the city in 1357 and predicted that a great town would be erected there, and that the town would never be ravaged. The Volga port of Samara appears on Italian maps of the 14th century. Before 1586 the Samara Bend was a pirate nest. Lookouts would spot an oncoming boat and quickly cross to the other side of the peninsula where the pirates would organize an attack. Officially the town started with a fortress 1586 at the confluence of the Volga and Samara Rivers. Samara fortress was built according to the order of Russian Tsar Fyodor I under leadership of Prince Grigory Zasekin. This fortress was a frontier post protecting the then easternmost boundaries of Russia from forays of nomads. It was built at the site of present-day Bread Square. A local customs office was established in 1600.

Samara was granted town status in 1688. As more and more ships pulled into Samara's port, the town turned into the center for diplomatic and economic links between Russia and the East. Samara also opened its gates to peasant war rebels headed by Stepan Razin (in 1670) and Yemelyan Pugachyov (in 1773), welcoming them with traditional Bread-and-Salt. The town was visited by Russian Emperors Peter the Great, Alexander I, Alexander II, Alexander III and Nicholas II.

In 1708 Samara was assigned to the Kazan Governorate, in 1719 - to Astrakhan Governorate, in 1728 - again to Kazan Governorate. In 1780 Samara was turned into the chief town (uezd) of the Simbirsk Governorate overseen by the local Governor-General, and Uezd and Zemstvo Courts of Justice as well as Board of Treasury were established. On January 1, 1851 Samara became the center of the Samara Governorate with an estimated population of 15.000 people. This gave a stimulus to the development of the economic, political and cultural life of the community. In 1877, during the Russian-Turkish war, a mission from the Samara City Council led by Pyotr Alabin, as a symbol of spiritual solidarity, brought a banner tailored in Samara pierced with bullets and saturated with the blood of both Russians and Bulgarians, to Bulgaria, which has become a symbol of Russian-Bulgarian friendship.

In 1846 steam ship "Volga" became the first steam ship, which visited Samara. In 1851 was founded first city theatre (now Samara Drama Theatre named after Maxim Gorky). In 1852 was opened first municipal bank. In 1874 was built Orenburg Railway, which reached Samara in 1877. In 1885-1890 was built Samara-Zlatoust Railway (Samara-Ufa-Zlatoust), which linked Volga Region and Southern Ural Region. In 1886 was opened first city museum.

The quick growth of Samara's economy in the late 19th and early 20th centuries was determined by the scope of the bread trade and flour milling business. The Samara Brewery came into being in the 1880s, as well as the Kenitser Macaroni Factory, an ironworks, a confectionery factory and a factory producing matches. The town acquired a number of magnificent private residences and administrative buildings. The Trading Houses of the Subbotins, Kurlins, Shikhobalovs and Smirnovs - founders of the flour milling industry, who contributed a lot to the development of the city - were widely known not only across Russia, but also internationally wherever Samara's wheat was exported. In its rapid growth Samara resembled many young North-American cities, and contemporaries coined the names "Russian New Orleans" and "Russian Chicago" for the city.

In 1897 the population of Samara had reached 90 thousand residents, and it was the major trading and industrial center of the Volga Region.

Horse-drawn tram

Territory of city was limited by the Volga River (from west) and Samara River (from south). Therefore, the city has been expanded only in one (northern) direction. If 1880s distance from northern border to Samara River was 5 km, that in the end of 19th century distance from northern border (Postnikov Ravine) to the southern border (Bread Square) increased to 11 km. This distance was difficult for walking. Therefore, need for public transport was obvious.

On July 4, 1886 city authorities signed contract with entrepreneurs Leonid Blummer and N. Rubinsky for construction of horse-drawn tram network in Samara. However, in 1886-1888 both entrepreneurs died. For this reason, their project was not approved in the Ministry of Internal Affairs in St. Petersburg and its realization was postponed. After this, in 1890 city authorities handed agreements on construction and exploitation of horse-drawn tram system in Samara (with all rights and liabilities) to the Belgian "Joint stock company of horse-drawn railways in Russia". Due to active construction works, which in 1890s were been carried out by Belgian company in other cities (Voronezh, Minsk, Vilnius), realization of Samara project was postponed. Horse-drawn tram system in Samara was opened only on July 22, 1895.

According to new contract, the first line was built from Old Kazan Cathedral (Bread Square) to the Molokan Orchard (now May Day street) - along the Kazan street (now Alexey Tolstoy street), Ascension street (now Stepan Razin street), Resurrection street (now Pioneers street), Gentry street (now Kuybyshev street), Panskaya street (now Leningrad street), Cathedral street (now Young Guard street), Tinmen street (now Leo Tolstoy street), Samara street, Simbirsk street (now Ulyanovsk street) and Garden street.

First horse-drawn tramline was divided on two parts: 1) from the Bread Square to the Trinity Market (now Frunze Square) at the crossing of Panskaya street (now Leningrad street) and Cathedral street (now Young Guard street); 2) from the Trinity Market to the Molokan Orchard (now May Day street). The horse-tram depot was built near Molokan Orchard. The maximum speed of horse-drawn tramcars was 12 km/h. The travel time by whole 5.4-km route was 40 minutes. Travel prices at each part were 5 kopecks or 0.05 rubles (first-class) and 3 kopecks or 0.03 rubles (second-class). The students had season tickets, which were costs 1 ruble (each season ticket gave the right on 23 trips by the whole 5.4-km route). In late summer of 1895 daily revenue of horse-drawn tram was 250-300 rubles, while daily consumption was 80-100 rubles. There worked 17 tramcars during "summer period" (since April 1 till October 1) and 8 tramcars during "winter period". The horse-drawn tram worked from 7:00am till 10:00 pm (during "summer period") and from 8:00am till 10:00pm (during "winter period").

Administration of society received big profit from exploitation of horse-drawn tram. Therefore, it was decided to extend tram network. In spring 1896 was built second tramline from the Bread Square along Tinmen street (now Leo Tolstoy street) to the Rail Terminal. This 2-km line was put into operation on June 27, 1896.

In June 1897 property of horse-drawn tram was valued at 210.000 rubles (including 17 tramcars and 7.4 km of tramways). In spring 1900 was started construction of third tramline to the cottage area. On June 14, 1900 was put into operation "cottage line" from Molokan Orchard (now May Day street) to the rest camps, after half of month this line was extended to the Postnikov Ravine near nothern border of Samara. Travel prices at "cottage line" (8 kopecks or 0.08 rubles) were higher than at urban lines (5 and 3 kopecks). The tramcars of this line were crowded. For the convenience of cottage people were introduced season tickets which costs 5 rubles (100 trips). Therefore, average ticket price was decreased from 8 to 5 kopecks. This line worked only during "cottage season" (from April 15 till September 15). Initially there were 4 tramcars at this line, but in summer 1901 this number was increased.

In 1901 in Samara were three routes with total lenght 10.5 km:
1) Bread Square - Trinity Market - Molokan Orchard;
2) Bread Square - Trinity Market - Rail Terminal;
3) Molokan Orchard - rest camps - Postnikov Ravine.

Since 1902 began to discussed the issue about construction of the fourth tramline from Postnikov Ravine to the resort in Barboshina Valley (with construction of the bridge across Postnikov Ravine), but this project was realized only in 1954. In 1909 horse-drawn tram system in Samara, as well as same systems in Tula, Voronezh, Minsk and Vilnius were passed from "Joint stock company of urban and suburban horse-drawn railways in Russia" into the possession of anonymous Belgian Tram Trust "Company of urban and suburban tramways in Russia". New Belgian shareholders continued to pay in the city treasury, but this amount was too small compared with profit from exploitation of tram system. By these years tramcars, which were built in 1890, began to come into disrepair due to long-term use. Belgian company had planned to electrify own tramlines in Russia. But, knowing about aspiration of city authorities municipalize tram system, Belgians didn't want to risk with modernization of old system in Samara.
