Tourist Map (44KB); Russia Destinations (main page)

Located on the shores of Lake Nero, Rostov Veliky is one of the oldest towns in Russia, tracing its roots back to 862 AD. The town has a long history of rebellion, and many of its inhabitants (including women who dressed in men’s clothing) went on to fight other principalities and invading armies. The city played a critical role in Russian history, being the site of siege and revolt against the Mongols in the 13th and 14th centuries, and the birthplace of some of the most influential leaders and clerics of the early Russian state. The earthen ramparts and 17th-century stone walls surround a medieval city. The Kremlin, unique in its architecture and dating back to 1162, is also where you will find the town's hotel.
