Rostov Oblast is a region rich in history. The steppes of the Don retain the memories of the Cossacks, Scythians, Sarmatians, and Greeks. The Don, one of Europe's longest rivers, flows through the region and is celebrated in the works of Mikhail Sholokhov, whose museum you can visit in the village of Vyoshenskaya. Taganrog, the birthplace of Anton Chekhov, is home to a museum-reserve. The ancient ruins of the city of Tanais and the secrets of the Aksay catacombs, discovered one thousand years ago, await lovers of antiquities and researchers.More about the region
