A student is becoming a viral star because of her astonishingly detailed architectural drawings.


Adelina Gareeva, from the city of Kazan in central Russia's Republic of Tatarstan, is attracting thousands of followers on social media thanks to her incredible talent.


The well-travelled young woman loves to sketch buildings in the places she visits and displays incredible attention to detail.


Miss Gareeva likes to draw buildings of all shapes and sizes from iconic classical buildings to futuristic fantasy architecture.


And she shows off her freehand creations on her social media page where she has more than 25,000 followers.


Miss Gareeva, who is also a model, currently studies at the Kazan State University of Architecture and Engineering (KSUAE).


She spurns modern digital software to instead specialise in making her creations with an old-fashioned paper and pencil.


Netizen 'saysaart' commented: "I'm in love with your sketching skills!", while 'yurii_remez' added: "You are amazing."


Kazan is the capital and largest city of the Republic of Tatarstan and the eighth biggest city in Russia.


Known as Russia's sporting capital, it hosted the 2013 Summer Universiade, the 2014 World Fencing Championships and the 2015 World Aquatics Championships, and is to be a host city for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
