If you are there relax and enjoy the atmosphere is impeccable. Just spend a few miners there and enjoy atmosphere of a Noble Prise winner of the Don river. Late Wrighter Sholokhov is illustrated well by the mosaic s at the place. Must see in my humble opinion.

You'll probably have to cross Bolshaya Sadovaya at some point during your trip. Make it worth your time by going down into the many underpasses along this busy street.

I think, it's unique art for Russia and looks pretty good, especially one mosaic where children in class did a sum. If you want to know more and can read Russian, you can read this http://www.viskra.ru/2013/06/blog-post_28.html. If you can't read - just see photos of this mosaic (scroll the page down, they are there)

These unique color mosaic tiles had turned the most boring underpass areas into stunning and dazzling works of art. These series are both dramatic and humorous. It could be made as the most visited attraction of the city. Too bad that the city government does not see the value of this treasure below ground level… Well, while the mosaics are... More

While I wouldn't travel to Rostov just to see it; if you're already going, it's worth taking a look as it is the only city in all of Russia with this particular type of mosaic art. It depicts typical soviet scenes of education and lifestyle and also scenes from World War II. You can find this art in a number... More
