City Description

The city was founded in 1749, when according to the Decree of the Empress Elisabeth a customs house was set up in the mouth of the Temernik River. Later the customs house was protected by a military fortress founded in 1761 and named after Saint Dmitriy Rostovskiy. The settlements that appeared around the fortress were called “Rostov-on-Don” for the first time on August 17, 1807, by the decree of the Emperor Alexander I.
Rostov-on-Don takes up an area of 354 square kilometers and has a population of more than 1.058 million people. The city is situated 1226 kilometers to the south-west from Moscow, at the junction of important transportation routes, which give the city access to three seas – the Black Sea, the Sea of Azov and the Caspian Sea – and immediate contact with all the countries of the European part of the CIS, the Middle East and the Mediterranean.
The favorable geographical position promoted the economic development of Rostov. Due to this fact the trading port was formed, accepting watercrafts of Russian, Greek, Italian, Turkish, Armenian and Persian merchants. That’s why Rostov-on-Don was called "The Gate of the Caucasus".
Rostov-on-Don is the political, economic and cultural center of the south of Russia, with considerable industrial, banking, trade and scientific potential.
The city of Rostov-on-Don is the cultural center of the south of Russia, with its four theaters (musical, drama, youth and puppet theaters), 220 cultural and arts facilities, many active creative unions and societies of national cultures. The city is decorated by 650 monuments of history, culture and monumental art.
Nowadays Rostov-on-Don is a modern and very important trading and transport gateway with its strategic port and international airport.
An international airport with a capacity of 4.5 billion passenger/kilometers operates in the city.
Getting to Rostov-on-Don from Moscow is easy. The proximity of major highways, railroads and Moscow International airports makes for easy access to Rostov-on-Don by air, train or bus. It will take you about 90 minutes to get to Rostov by air, 18 hours by train and 15-17 hours by bus.
One of the wonderful places for rest is the Quay. Here you can see many sculptural compositions, showing the heroes out of books of the great Russian writer, Nobel-prize winner M. Sholokhov.
Many tourists may notice that the Rostov women are beautiful. Their beauty inspired sculptors to create the monument “ Rostovchanka”, devoted to all the Rostov women.
