Rostov-on-Don. Sunday walk Lots of photos
I flew to Rostov a little more than one month ago. I didn’t like it at all from the taxi window on the way from the airport. An ordinary gray post-Soviet city with stupid signboards. Of course, that's true. I like the combination of the old pre-revolutionary architecture and the new one in Rostov. This makes the city picturesque and distinctive.
March 7, Sunday, downtown , ☀️ +5°
Banner fabric on the building of the hotel "Moskovskaya", Bolshaya Sadovaya Street
I live on Pushkina Street in Bendery. Just across the street from my house is Gorky Park. In Rostov, I rent an apartment on Pushkinskaya Street and in 2 blocks - a park named after whom? All right 😊
I walked along Pushkinskaya Street through the park and came out on Bolshaya Sadovaya Street. The park is unremarkable.
👉 Towards Budennovsky Prospekt
👈 Towards Voroshilovsky Prospekt
Towards the central market and the Cathedral of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary
Disc in front of the entrance to the park, from the side of Bolshaya Sadovaya Street. It symbolizes the city center
Then I went in the direction of the Cathedral, through Soborniy Pereulok. Beautiful central street. Many cafes and shops. Garlands are stretched along the entire length of the street. Hipsters are walking around.
☕ Cafe "Keks". The most delicious coffee in the city I drank here
The streets and neighborhoods in the downtown area are similar to Istanbul. Only there are not a lot of policemen and beggars.
The end of Soborniy Pereulok. Outlet to the Cathedral ⛪
As in any other city, if you turn a corner, you'll find yourself in a ghetto.
Great luck to find a mattress near the trash cans 👍
Everything is perfect here
I returned to Bolshaya Sadovaya Street and walked towards Voroshilovsky Prospekt. Just look at these buildings!
Tenement building of the Gench-Ogluevs, 1883
Tenement building of K. N. Mavrogordato
City Council Building
“Rossetti South” branch, Bolshaya Sadovaya Street
I got tired and went to 🍔 Burger King. I began to cheat McDonald's more often.
I returned back through Budennovsky Prospekt.
Graffiti on the building of the Palace of Creativity of Children and Youth
The sign plate on the sweet-shop at the corner of Bolshaya Sadovaya and Budennovsky
The public garden near the House of Books
A popular place, judging by the number of signs. Budennovsky Prospekt 27
We walked for 3 hours. We — me, Polya and small Katya 👼🏻
I show Katya a building with a floral pattern
I'm taking a picture of a wine restaurant on Pushkinskaya Street
Photos from the fair of all sorts of Soviet trash will be later. And also photos from the embankment. And then from Pushkinskaya Street.
