Title of the articleHistorical overview of Kazan city market squares formation
Abstract.During some centuries the main market square was Yarmarochnaya and most of the city population lived within walls of city suburb («posad»). Market squares at entry gates were the most commercial and comfortable place for trade. Political reforms of government caused changes in city plan: Sennoy market that was mostly visited by residents of Old Tatar district gradually became less attractive for big mass of customers and finally lost its trade functions. When city boundaries developed far to south and west, and market trading concentrated not in central part, but at periphery, main shopping arcade was reorganized into Tatar National Museum. The most profitable places for trade were traditionally entrance gates, through roads, railway station squares. Presumably, points of transport accumulation and service objects, which are currently at periphery, are future centers of Kazan agglomeration. It is possible theoretically to forecast the location of future periphery trade centers and accordingly mobilize necessary resources for new trade centers to avoid chaotic development of illegal markets.
Keywords.Radial system, Kazan Posad, entry portal, transport load, lost trade functions.
