Our trip to the fortress of Azov happened spontaneously on the way to Taman Peninsula. And I must admit, when we went there, we knew very little about this city and about the fortress itself, more precisely about the fortress shaft. Just when we were in Tanais Museum Reserve, we were advised to look here, if we will be on the way. What we did. I can not say that it is worth it, but if you pass by, then you can call in.
Fortress of Azov
Today, from the Azov Fortress itselfalmost nothing was left, only the ramparts and the Alekseevskie Gate. These buildings are now restored and attract quite a lot of tourists, this place seemed to us very quiet and rather picturesque. Scenic views of the Don River delta open from the fortress wall, a rather strong wind blows and you are standing at a height, before you such vast spaces and it seems that you are about to take off. And if you don’t want to fly, you can simply stroll and gaze at various ships stationed nearby in the port.
