White Kalitva was founded in 1703, and the firstmentions of it are connected with the times of the Word of the Regiment of Igor, when the Russian army fell in battle with the Polovtsy. Archaeological excavations say that people lived here in the 2nd millennium BC. The city itself is quite green and clean, and makes a pleasant impression. The only thing was that it was difficult to navigate on the road, since the city has an irregular shape and is divided by rivers, we wandered several times and left not where we wanted. Belaya Kalitva is located in the center of the Rostov region and is the cradle of the Don Cossacks.
The route of our trip and its concept can be seen here: We participate in the project "Russia for 365 days"
The surroundings of White Kalitva are very picturesque: the hills, the rocky Avil Mountains, the wide river Seversky Donets flows through and through. We rarely happen in the steppe, but it seems that Belokalitvensky district has a landscape that is not typical of the steppes. Despite our love for dense forests, we often could not tear our eyes away from one breathtaking view.

White Kalitva can be viewed in one day, and itsneighborhood for a couple more. For the first time this will be enough. First, it is best to go to the Museum of Local Lore and get acquainted with the main historical moments, then walk through the city park, located near the museum, then climb the Karaul-mountain and look at the whole city from above.
Guard-mountain is closely connected with the Word of the regiment of Igor. In 1970, a monument was erected to the brave Rus. Previously, there was a reconstruction of the battle and the Kayal readings (later they were moved).
People of White Kalitva
First of all, White Kalitva will be interesting.lovers of history, this is its main attraction. What is there just did not happen: the genocide against the Cossacks, numerous territorial transformations, the occupation and the camps of prisoners of war, battles for liberation. At the same time, judging by the historical background, there is a large percentage of people who have done something outstanding: 19 USSR heroes of World War II, 3 cavaliers of the Order of Glory, 29 State Prize winners, 7 world champions, dozens of Russian and European champions. But this is only a town of miners and metallurgists. Probably there is something special in these lands ...

Cossack Cadet Corps
The theme of the people and the new generation ... In Belaya Kalitvathere is a prestigious Cossack cadet corps, where children come to study not only from the Rostov region, but also from the Krasnodar Territory, Moscow and Siberia.
