Novocherkassk has been created as a new capital of the Don
Cossacks, following wide span of its streets and squares, meant for reconnaissance
of the cavalry squadrons and featuring parade triumphal arches together with
monumental and majestic cathedral. As for Taganrog history,
there are three cultural strata, reflecting three most important periods thereof:
ancient and those of Peter and Chekhov. Each of them is represented by wonderful
memorial places and architecture. Taganrog is a town of several palace ensembles
and estate buildings, exhibiting in everything either certain architectural
scale or significance of the respective personalities...
Azov might seem to the traveller as a surprisingly quiet and
provincial township. However, impressive, polygonal earthen redoubts of the
XVIII century with their massive gates and the powder arsenal will remind you
about the former war events, which came down into the country history not as
some ordinary episode. One fact evidences the great historic significance of
Azov, that it is the only town in the world, in honor of which they called the
sea, bearing the same name. External view of Starocherkasskaya stanitsa
might fill in the soul with some particular song-like beauty and harmony.
It is a site, where divine nature of the Don lower reaches is interweaved into
the carved architectural plastics... The tourist routes over Rostov region are
also different. In general, they are provided by leading tour operators of the
region: aquatic voyages over Don river and Azov Sea, excellent fishing and hunting,
travelling over hidden paths in Don steppes, traditional Cossacks hospitality,
folklore festivities, arranged in Starocherkasskaya and Veshenskaya
stanitsas, as well as reconstructive scenes of the everyday life of

at least once, you would like undoubtedly to come back again and when observing
already familiar spaces to exclaim in Pushkin's wav: «Hello, Don!»
