344006 Rostov-on-Don
Russia

Welcome to Rostov-on-Don!

Rostov-on-Don has a unique, unparalleled look because of its rich historical and cultural ancestry. Location on the right bank of the kindly river Don and a crossroad of trade routes determined Rostov’s merchant destiny, motley traditions and its inhabitants’ free spirit. Still, as in the XIX century, your eye is caught by the old houses, golden cathedral domes, market rich with food. You will cross the border of Europe and Asia, see the world-famous architectural masterpiece – the Gorky Drama Theatre, feel the local colour, resting in the shades of chestnuts and poplars, filling the quiet inner yards and parks.

Taganrog - The Town by the Sea

Taganrog is situated on the shore of the Sea of Azov. It is the cradle of the Russian Navy and one of the most important ports in the XIX century. Taganrog is the native place of the great writer Anton Chekhov. This is where he spent his childhood and youth, which shaped him as a human being. The excursion route goes through the town center, which is now a historical and architectural reserve area, with the whole blocks of old merchant mansions remain standing. The most notable ones include the Chekhov Drama Theater with its hall which is the exact copy of the one of Milano’s La Scala and the Alferaki Palace.

Azov - The Ancient and the Modern

More than 900 years old, Azov is the most ancient locality in Rostov Region. It remembers Venetian merchants, Mongolian hordes, Ottoman Janissaries, the glorious Cossack siege of 1642 and Peter the Great. The 18th century fortress ramparts, gate and moat remain standing. From these you will see the marvelous Don panorama and the territory of the old fortress with the monuments to the Cossack heroes. The paleontological museum contains a marvelous exhibition of ancient animals and ‘The Treasures of the Eurasian Nomads’, an unmatched collection of Scythian jewelry.

Starocherkasskaya - The Don's Pearl

Starocherkasskaya is a cossack village (stanitsa). It is well known as a Cossack capital and Napoleonic general Matvei Platov’s birthplace. It was often called the Don Venice by the local inhabitants and people from the other parts of Russia. The tourists will have a chance to visit famous Host Resurrection Cathedral with its unique iconostasis, Maidan (the main square) and the Atamans' mansion.

Tanais - The Mystery of the Ancient Town

‘Tanais’ museum reserve is the largest museum of antiquity in Russia. Its 3000 ha territory hosts the ensemble of the monuments of history and culture of different ages and nations from the Paleolithic age up to the 10th century. It was founded on the basis of diggings made in the north-eastern outpost of Ancient Greece, dated to the 3rd century BC. One theory is that it was destroyed by a fire, another is that it was ruined and looted by the Goths. The settlement, the necropolis and other areas explored by the archaeologists, make an open air exhibition. The most fascinating findings – ceramics, coins, jewelry, amphorae and glassware – are demonstrated in the indoor exhibition.

Aksay - The Old Cossack Stanitsa

Aksay settlement was first mentioned in the chronicles in 1570. It used to be situated near the frontier and was constantly raided by the Turks and the nomads, but it`s convenient location on the crossroad leading to Starocherkasskaya kept bringing people here. The main road to the Caucasus laid through Aksay and stanitsa was also a place of crossing the Don. Aksay’s post office was visited by the greatest Russian writers A. Pushkin, M. Lermontov and L. Tolstoy. Stanitsa’s outskirts were home to the fortress with customs. Fortress’ underground mazes, arched ceilings and exhibited old weapons are able to enchant every tourist.
