Belaya Kalitva
March 30, 2017 01:23


Belaya Kalitva is the largest of the small towns of Rostov Oblast. The town is immersed in greenery, it is mainly a single-storey town among low hills covered with gray feather grass, it may seem a large Cossack village (which is historically the truth). Nevertheless, the town-forming enterprise of Belaya Kalitva is a metallurgical plant, the second largest Russian enterprise for the production of semi-finished products of aluminum alloys.

The population of the former Cossack village of Ust-Belokalitvenskaya today exceeds 50 thousand people. The town is incredibly cozy.

The abundance of small sculptural forms on local streets is striking — they include classic works of art like bronze Aksinya and Grigory from “Quiet Don” by Sholokhov adorning the spit of the rivers of Seversky Donets and Kalitva, as well as fanciful ones (such as a painted four-meter tyrannosaur that can be found in the town park). In addition, the town and its surroundings have over three hundred monuments — predominantly, archaeological ones: even the artifacts aged 4000 years were found here during excavations. By the way, many local residents believe that the Kalitva River is the Kayala River from “The Lay of Igor’s Campaign”. The main highest point of the town, Karaul-mount, has a monument to Warriors of the Prince Igor made of simple stone with an inscription, which makes it resemble a gravestone.
