Underpass Art

Reviewed By emfromsydney - Sydney, Australia

While I wouldn't travel to Rostov just to see it; if you're already going, it's worth taking a look as it is the only city in all of Russia with this particular type of mosaic art. It depicts typical soviet scenes of education and lifestyle and also scenes from World War II. You can find this art in a number of underpasses along the main street: Bolshaya Sadovaya Ulitsa.

Rostov Zoo

Reviewed By mihhail i - Thailand

Of advantages - a large collection of animals over a large area. Of the shortcomings - needs renovation, both the animal rooms, and walking paths. Some species (like tigers, wolves) are still kept in cages. In my opinion, having such a large territory, the administration could think about how to extend the laws for animals, and do not keep them in cages as it did 100 years ago.

City Gardens

Reviewed By emfromsydney - Sydney, Australia

Park Gorkovo is a fantastic place to visit around New Year (but still excellent at other times too). There is a giant Christmas Tree and you can visit the house of Grandfather Frost (Dyed Maros). There are also plenty of fairy lights and night time markets selling all sorts of Christmas, New Year and generally festive trinkets. Year round it is nice just to walk the winding footpaths through the trees and visit various monuments of famous Russian historical figures, the most prominant being Lenin. At the main entrance on Bolshaya Sadovaya Ulitsa there are markets during the day selling traditional Russian souvenirs. On the opposite side of the park near Puskinskaya Ulitsa there are attraction rides including a big (old) ferris wheel. It may not come up to western safety standards but it is the best way to get an aerial view of the entire city. There are also plenty of other rides in various stages of workingness if you dare. In the winter the ride operator also hands you a piece of cardboard to sit on so you don't freeze to the seat... I had a ball but it might not be for everyone.

The good collection of old railway machines. Unfortunatelly the technical condition is not exellent. However if you like the Railways you can see some rare examples.
