What to expect

The era of a whole class of the most successful and enterprising people not only in Rostov-on-Don but throughout Russia! The merchants of the 1st guild are the owners of numerous factories, factories, motor ships and even coal mines. Today we have forgotten their names… but once upon a time all of Russia knew about them. And many were mentioned with great respect abroad.

Rostov-on-Don magnetically attracted dodgers who wanted to make a fortune. They came to the Don and became extraordinarily rich because of their sharpness, pressure and favorable local conditions for entrepreneurship.

You will walk along the main city street, see the luxurious apartment buildings and mansions of such merchants as Yablokov, Gench-Ogluev, Shaposhnikov, Gots, Velikanov and others. You will see the most elegant place in the city - Cathedral Lane and the main cathedral of Rostov-on-Don. Make a wish at the peddler sculpture who brings good luck and wealth. Your tour will finish at the "Old Bazaar".
