History Of Rostov Bazaar
May 3, 2015 15:33


The first official shopping arcade inscribed into the urban plan appeared on the place of the market in 1820. The shopping rows were initially made of wood.

In 1879 they were demolished; two stone buildings for small shops were built. Then there was a project of covered markets which was implemented in 1886. The market expanded and grew, gained respectability.

However, the construction was carried out randomly, and new markets emerged everywhere around. For example, Rozhdestvensky Market at the modern Oborony Street. In Soviet times they had to update the Old Market. Stone buildings were not demolished, but made ugly by the changes (in 1960s, 1980s and in our time), so no architectural patterns of XIX century can be seen in them now.

Numerous pavilions and warehouses, purely functional, free from all aesthetics, were added to the old buildings. Even the entrance arches and gates that had to somehow decorate the facade of the market have an impersonal look.

The market is a chaotic conglomeration of pavilions and indoor shopping rows, far from any ideas of architecture.

However, the competition for the attention of residents and tourists is won by the cathedral of trade over the religious one, without any doubt. And it is very much in Rostov style. The most interesting things here are not museums and monuments which are plenty here, but the real life, generous south, a mix of everything and everyone.
