    Smile Classify People from Kazan, Tatarstan

    Females

    Males

    Interesting range of phenotypes.

    1.4 million live in Kazan, over 48.5% are Tatars, 43.3% are Russians, 3.7% are Chuvash and Mordvinians, Udmurts, Mari, and Bashkirs together make up 4.5%. There are also some Germans there.

    Kazan, the capital of the Republic of Tatarstan, is celebrating a thousandth birthday in the year 2005. Standing at the crossroads of trading routes between the West and the East, Kazan has been a multinational city for as long as its history goes and is home to more than 70 nationalities. The Germans came to settle in Kazan in the 16th century. On orders from Tsar Ivan the Terrible thousands of Germans and Scots captured in the Livonian War came to live in cities across the region with the right to free religion. The majority of Kazan Germans were merchants and tradesmen. But there were scientists among them too: Karl Fooks, a doctor and ethnographer, one Kazan University's first rectors, chemist Alexander Butlerov, pathologist Petr Lesgaft. 450 Germans lived in Kazan one hundred years ago. 324 of them were Lutherans. The German Lutheran Community in Kazan wad founded in 1767. That same year saw the beginning of the construction of St.Catherine's Church, a wooden structure that opened in 1773. A year later the church burnt down but was soon restored in stone. In 1929 it was nationalized and in 1996 was returned to the city's German community. In addition to divine services and a German choir, it hosts plays in German. And working under its wing are the republic's German House and the German Culture Center, which offers German language courses. Kazan has four secondary schools specializing in the German language. The German population of Kazan is now about 500 and about 10 thousand live on the territory of Tatarstan.

    Most of the girls could pass for eastern Europeans.

    But most of them probably are eastern Europeans (Slavs).

    The guys show more exotic phenotypes for sure.

    Funny thing is that a woman like this is probably seen by many as a Mongol mix because of her exotic looks, AND the fact that she is from Tatarstan.

    But I've seen girls like her in Scandinavia, both with dark and blond hair. And over there, they're seen as normal Nordic girls.

    And an East Asian type. Obviously with very little, if any, Slavic blood.

    She looks Slavic to me. Sure, she could pass for Germanic, but I wouldn't associate that look with most Germanic girls.

    The eyes are Slavic.

    Most Slavic girls don't look like her. She has exceptional purity.
