Admire the architecture of Rostov-on-Don Embankment

Rostov-on-Don Embankment

Hugely popular with the locals is the Don River Embankment, which stretches over nearly two kilometres along the Beregovaya Street. The hustle and bustle never ceases here, making it the city’s most vibrant promenade. Sit down for a snack in the shade (June is usually extremely warm in Rostov-on-Don), take a river cruise along the Don or cycle along the embankment to check out local art and monuments.

Bolshaya Sadovaya Street and Theatre Square

Bolshaya Sadovaya Street and Theatre Square

The pedestrian Soborny Pereulok leads from the Cathedral to the Bolshaya Sadovaya Street, the city’s most presentable and arguably most beautiful street, challenged for this prestigious title only by Pushkinskaya Street, an overwhelmingly green, partly pedestrian-only street a few blocks north. Bolshaya Sadovaya Street crosses the city from west to east and is home to most of the city’s landmarks and monuments.

Cathedral of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin

Cathedral of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin

A symbol of the city and one of the most recognisable pieces of architecture in Rostov-on-Don, the Cathedral is situated in Cathedral Square, a mere 400 metres from the embankment. Ever since the city’s foundation in 1749, there has always been a church on this site. Reopened on the initiative of its citizens in 1942, a hugely difficult time for the city under German occupation, the cathedral underwent complete restoration after the war, with the bell tower fully restored in 1999 to mark the 250th anniversary of the city’s foundation.

“Rostovchanka” Sculptural Composition

Rostovchanka Sculptural Composition

The “Rostovchanka” monument greets the guests of the megapolis and residents on the embankment of Don. This sculptural composition is dedicated to beautiful women of the Southern capital. The creator of the monument is the sculptor and artist A. Sknarin. He depicted a generalized image of a Rostov woman as a young girl with her hair down. Free like the wind, she threw wide her arms and turned her face to the sun.

Rostov Dolphinarium

Rostov Dolphinarium

The Rostov Dolphinarium is a wonderful place for family free time in Rostov-on-Don – here you can have a good time and take a rest. It consists of three pools inhabited by sea creatures, three comfortable grandstands for viewers, and very unusual and beautiful decorations. The building itself also is worthy of particular attention – it was constructed in soviet times and became the first building in the country that was designed specifically for holding sea animals and organizing their performances.
