It is worth making a walk along the Ushakov Embankment in Rostov-on-Do, as it actually resembles a sculpture museum. Although it is called after the naval commander Ushakov, it could reasonably be named after a writer, the Nobel Prize winner in literature Mikhail Sholokhov. On the embankment there is a monument to the writer and sculptures with the characters of his writings. Along with them, the embankment is decorated with sculptures of "A Native of Rostov-on-Don" (“Rostovchanka”), "The Fisherman", "The Father Don", and figures from metal waste - "Industrial Heart of the Don" and "Mechanical Harmonist", as well as the bust of Fyodor Ushakov.
A fair is always arranged on the embankment on the City Day, with the participation of all the city diasporas preparing their own national dishes. In fact, you can spend the whole day on the embankment and stay connected: there is free Wi-Fi here, as well as special tents where you can charge your gadgets for free. From here you can also get on a short trip along the Don: pleasure boats and yachts are at visitors’ disposal.
