Summer In Azov
April 11, 2016 15:00


Azov is not located on the shore of the Azov Sea, as you might think, but it stands on the River Don and its feeder – the Azovka river. The distance from the city to the Gulf of Taganrog is about fifteen kilometers and 25 kilometers up to Rostov-on-Don by a good highway. 

Here are a lot of holidaymakers, so that Azov can be considered as a resort town.

In summer people come here from all over the country. Fishing, swimming is possible both on the Don and very close - in the Azov Sea. Buses and taxis go between the coastal villages. The most popular beach leisure place is Pavlo-Ochakovskaya Bay-bar. There are many touristic centers, cafes and restaurants here.

The Don in the area of Azov is really quiet, the banks of the river are overgrown with reeds, the beach is surrounded by a wooded park. The Azov sea port is considered to be a big marine port and plays an important role in the transportation of cargoes from the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov up to the Don and to the middle of Russia. Before it was possible to sail by  a rocket or a small motorship from Azov to Rostov-on-Don and Taganrog. 

Today it is possible to boat only to Zadonye district, located on the opposite river bank. There is no need for the tourists to sail to Zadonye, in general, there is nothing to see except the the private sector. On the mooring you can see the ads tours by private motorships, which usually means a fishing trip. Citizens-vacationers go outside with a pleasure as fishing is a famous on the Don.

In August the National Festival of the military-historical clubs takes place in Azov, which is dedicated to the siege sitting of Cossacks, defending against the Turkish army in 1641-1642. Enthusiasts-enactors recreate the scenes of this event.
