The easiest way to get to Rostov-on-Don is by plane. Aeroflot offers 7 daily direct flights. The flight from Moscow to Rostov-on-Don International Airport, 8 km from the city centre, takes 2 hours.
The earlier you book your tickets, the more affordable the flight will be, as the most affordable fares sell out quickly. Another way to save is by purchasing a round-trip ticket.
Rostov-on-Don is a southern city with a generous spirit, ready to welcome anybody who will appreciate its beauty, hospitality and warm weather. During its almost 270-year history, the city has accumulated quite a number of sights, including exquisite mansions, old parks and curious museums.
Although Rostov is not on the coast, the proximity of the Sea of Azov (only 40 km away) is palpable, and the atmosphere here is quite resort-like. Actually, there are beaches in the city, and lakes suitable for swimming just outside of it. And then there is the Rostov Sea – a huge artificial reservoir with great beach infrastructure. The climate is perfect for swimming: summers are hot and last much longer than the calendar says they should. Winters are mild with little snow, and both autumn and spring are short. The best months to visit are May, June and September.
