The building known as the Agricultural Palace was erected in 2010, replacing some unsafe structures near the park with the same name. It houses the Ministry of Agriculture and Food of Tatarsan, The Veterinary Authority, and a few other agencies. Locals and visitors tend to have mixed feelings about this impressive building, featuring Empire and Classicist Influences, complete with portals and a dome. Some call this kitsch, others admire Agricultural Palace as a symbol of a new Kazan.
All of the construction works on the territory of seventeen thousand square meters, including interior finishing and curb appeal, were completed in two years. Each building, especially the classical one, is unique. In this particular project the center of the composition was the magnificent bronze tree of 20 meters high, which represented the cultivated nature and noble work of farmers.
The crown of the tree is decorated with a tracery arch, the upper corners of which are decorated with bás-reliefs of olive tree branches. The archivolt and olive branches make the leaves of the bronze tree.
The building is also decorated with winged snow leopards, which represent the symbol os statehood of the Republic of Tatarsan.
