On the banks of the River Don, at a meeting point of canals, railways and roads, regional capital Rostov-on-Don is a bustling port city.
It’s a cultural centre, too, with scores of restaurants, theatres and art galleries. There are lots of museums, many documenting the history of the Cossack people – native to the Don basin.
This city is characterised by its distinctive art deco and neo-classical architecture. Elsewhere there are a handful of parks crossed by canals, ponds and pretty bridges.
You can visit the birthplace of Anton Chekhov, the famous writer, in Taganrog – 40 minutes by car from Rostov-on-Don. The small, white-washed building now houses a museum full of Chekhov memorabilia. Elsewhere in Taganrog is the Museum of Local Lore and History, housed inside a palatial mansion. Among the many exhibitions are belongings of Emperor Alexander I.
