EN: Rostov is full of interesting sculpture at every step, each of them representing the life of the city or a person symbol of Rostov. Also, they have many green spaces, parks so you can find a cooler space when you visit, especially in the summertime, and they are beautiful!

RO: Rostov este impanzit cu sculpturi interresante la fiecare pas, fiecare reprezentand viata orasului sau o persoana, simbol al orasului. Deasemenea, au numeroase spatii verzi, parcuri asa ca poti gasi un loc ca te racoresti cand vizitezi, in mod special pe timpul verii si sunt minunate!

EN: I have to admit that if you can’t speak their language it is a little bit hard because everything is in Russian even the names of the streets so a good friend is the phone GPS or Google translate, at least you don’t get lost! At least at some coffee shops and restaurants, you can find an English menu, otherwise, you just have to guess from the picture:)))! I know this city isn’t so touristic but for The World Cup, I was expecting to be more prepare for visitors!

RO: Trebuie sa recunosc ca daca nu cunosti limba este un pic cam greu, deoarece totul este in Rusa, inclusiv numele strazilor asa ca un bun prieten este GPS-ul telefonului sau Google traduceri, cel putin asa nu te pierzi! Cel putin la unele cafenale si restaurante poti gasi si meniuri in limba engleza, altfel trebuie sa ghicesti ce doresti din poze:)))! Stiu ca acest oras nu este unul turistic dar pentru Cupa Mondiala, ma asteptam sa fie mai pregatit pentru turisti!

EN:  I only visit Rostov Museum of Local Lore which was pretty interesting and was a good way to be more familiarized with Russsian history, no English translates but nice exponents. They had the best bodyguard, a cat !!!

RO: Am vizitat doar Muzeul de istorie si obiceuri din Rostov care a fost destul de interesant si un mod bun de a te familariza cu istoria Rusiei, nici o traducere in limba engleza dar cu exponente faine. Au cel mai bun bodyguard, o pisica!!!

1. Coffee Man has the best coffee ( ask for the art cappuccino) and the best breakfast ideas, cozy space, and friendly staff!

3. Dinner time, don’t miss Drago Steakhouse, absolutely delicious! And like you see from the picture no meal without “bors” the Russian soup you will not regret this choice!

 To not forget I loved to taste food from the central market, I picked an apricot and tomato, the taste of them reminds me of childhood, was unbelieve, I really recommend you to give it a try :)!

RO: Am facut un top 3 al locurilor mele preferate din Rostov unde poti avea o mancare specifica, delicioasa si gustoasa. Coffee Man are cea mai buna cafea (comandati art cappucino)si cele mai bune ideii de mic dejun, un spatiu primitor si angajati prietenosi! Pentru un pranz nemapomenit as alege fara indoiala Pit Coffe Jazz, menul este asa the bogat si diversificat!!!! Yummyyy!!!

Timpul pentru cina, nu ratati restaurantul Drago Steakhouse, absolut delicios! Si cum poti observa din poze nici o masa fara”bors” o supa specifica ruseasca, nu o sa regreti alegerea!

Trebuie sa adaug ca si piata centrala este un loc in care mi- a plcaut sa degust o piersica si o rosie, aducandu-mi aminte de copilarie si de gustul real al lor, va recomand cu drag sa ii acordati o sansa:)!
