Rostov’s main attraction is unashamedly photogenic...
The restored monastery is the fairy-tale apparition you’ll see as you approach Rostov by road or rail. Take bus 1 or 2 or walk alongside Lake Nero 2km west from the kremlin...
What claims to be a ‘medieval Russian’ menu is essentially a fresh and intelligent take on Russian cuisine as it was before mayo and potatoes...
This is a simple Georgian eatery that makes khachapuri cheese pies and khinkali (dumplings) as they do it back home...
For a different perspective of Rostov, take a 40-minute cruise of Lake Nero. Boats leave from a pier near the west gate of the kremlin and pass both monasteries as well as an island in the middle of the lake.
