Belaya Kalitva was founded in 1703, and the first mentions of it are associated with the times «A word about Igor's regiment», when the Russian army was killed in the battle with the Polovtsians. Archaeological excavations say that people lived here in the 2nd millennium BC. The city itself is quite green and clean and makes a good impression. The only thing was it was difficult to navigate the road, since the city has an irregular shape and is divided by rivers, we strayed several times and left the wrong place. 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 are participating in the project «Russia in 365 days»
The outskirts of Belaya Kalitva are very picturesque: hills, rocky Avilovy mountains, the wide river Seversky Donets flows through. We rarely visit the steppe, but the impression is that the Belokalitvensky district has a landscape uncharacteristic for the steppes. Despite our love for dense forests, we often could not take our eyes off one or another spectacular view..

Belaya Kalitva Rostov Region
Belaya Kalitva can be seen in one day, and its surroundings in a couple more. This will be enough for the first time. First, it is best to go to the Museum of Local Lore and get acquainted with the main historical moments, then take a walk in the city park located not far from the museum, then climb Karaul Mountain and look at the whole city from above.
Karaul-mountain is closely connected with the Word about Igor's regiment. In 1970, a monument to the brave Russians was erected. Previously, a reconstruction of the battle and the Kajal readings took place here (later they were postponed).

In Belaya Kalitva there 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.
