Novocherkassk
Novocherkassk is a city in Rostov Oblast, Russia, located on the right bank of the Tuzlov River and on the Aksay River. Museum-lovers will get to explore Novocherkassk Museum of Don Cossacks History and Atamanskiy Palace. Popular historic sites such as Atamanskiy Palace and Don Temple of Mother of God are in your itinerary. Venture out of the city with trips to Starocherkasskiy Voyskovoy sobor Voskreseniya Khristova (in Starocherkasskaya) and Eternal Flame Memorial (in Shakhty). There's still lots to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Ascension Cathedral, don't miss a visit to Monument Ataman M.I. Platovu, and pause for some photo ops at Monument to Victims of Novocherkassk Tragedy.
