Rostov-on-Don, with a population of more than 1.1 million people, is the largest city in the south of Russia. It is unofficially called “the Gates to the Caucasus”, the southern capital of Russia, “Rostov-Papa”, or simply Rostov.

This city, founded in 1749, is located in the southeast of the East European Plain, on the banks of the Don River, 46 km from its confluence in the Azov Sea, 1,074 km south of Moscow. Rostov-on-Don will host several matches of FIFA World Cup 2018. Photos by: Slava Stepanov.
