Travel Itinerary and Road Trip Route

Day 1: Museum-Reserve "Tanais", Azov, Alexandrovsky forest, Yeisk

Spend the first half of the day in the archaeological museum "Tanais", and then go for a walk on the mysterious Azov fortress. In the Alexander Forest, watch the deer, and spend the rest of the evening in the main children's center of Eisk.

Rostov-on-Don

Археологический музей Танаис

"Today, Tanais is one of the largest Russian archaeological museum-reserves. In winter there are almost no visitors here, so you can wander in silence through the excavations and study the reconstruction of ancient huts and historical costumes. Upon prior request, you can attend individual 45-minute classes with a master - for example, try weaving belts made of thread or weaving using ancient technology. [Museum](https://www.museum-tanais.ru/) is open daily from 9:00 to 5:00. For all questions call +7 (86349)2-04-08.

Вот Блин Да Кофе

Before the next point of the trip, you need a good refreshment. Visit one of the most cozy establishments in Azov, "Oh, shit, yes, coffee. The range of dishes is not very large, but everything is cooked with the soul - and prices are definitely delightful.

Крепостной вал

Azov fortress is interesting for walking at any time of year, even in winter. The fort has its history since 1475, when the Turks conquered the city of Tana (where you were two hours ago). From the once large-scale construction remained Alexeyevsky Gate and a fragment of the rampart up to 15 meters high. From the rampart of the fortress there is a beautiful view of the Don and the river port.

Alexander Forest

From Azov, hurry up to Alexandrovsky forest, the largest artificial forest in the Rostov region. It was broken back in 1884. It's not just a forest, it's a real deer country! You don't have to climb into the thicket to meet deer: they roam everywhere. It's true that animals don't want to get close - so admire shy creatures from far away. There's also a pheasanarium and a mini-zoo with charming rabbits in the forest.

Sicilia (Сицилия)

For dinner, drop in at her Café Sicily, which will delight you with an excellent selection of Italian, Japanese and Russian dishes. All kinds of pizza (including original zucchini variations), fresh salads and soups - all family members will be equally happy!

Chunga-Changa Children's Game Center

After dinner, you can visit the Chunga-Changa Children's Play Center. This complex is ahead of similar establishments in Krasnodar and Rostov in terms of infrastructure and level on a head. You can judge for yourself: 1000 square meters of entertainment for children, animators, modern playgrounds for recreation - and while the children are partying on the slides, parents have some time to relax over a cup of tea in the cafe. The center works every day from 12:00 to 21:00. For more information please call 8 (918) 461-77-77.

Day 2: Yeisk, ice palace, Cossack museum.

Start your morning with a stroll through the winter Jeisku and Jeisku spit - this time of year the city is surprisingly deserted and endlessly charming. Stop by the local Museum of Local Lore and then hurry to the village of Kushchevskaya to sharpen your skating skills. Finally, visit the Cossack Watch Ethnographic Centre to learn all about Cossacks and ride horses.

Приморская набережная

Get up early to start the day with a walk along the promenade of Eiska. Breathe in the cool sea air and admire the winter sea views. Mild winters in Jeisk are overshadowed by strong winds, but this time of year there are almost no tourists.

Yiddish Kosa

Don't be lazy to get to the Spit: in winter it's an amazing sight. It's true that the winds don't make it much longer, but you'll be able to admire the spectacular views and take a couple of spectacular family photos for sure.

The V.V. Yeisky Historical and Local Lore Museum. Samsonov

If local museums are rarely visited in summer, then winter is a good time to learn something new. The local history museum tells about the foundation of Jejsk and its famous people, nature and animals of the region. Here you can see weapons of primitive people, antique furniture and household items, stuffed local birds and much more. It is best to order a tour, so as not to miss the most important and not to overwork early. There are also quests and multimedia interactive programs in the museum. [Museum](https://muzeisamsonova.ru/) is open every day except Monday. You can sign up for the tour by calling 8 (86132) 2-53-04.

Have lunch here: cafe "Park" will delight you with a pleasant atmosphere, a huge range of dishes and quick service.

Ice Palace "Snowman"

In the village Kushchevskaya there is an excellent ice rink "Snowman" - a wonderful place to be charged with vigor and good mood. In the daytime the skating rink is open only on weekends (from 12:00 to 20:00), on Tuesday and Friday the skating rink is open only in the evening, and the rest of the days there are sports classes.
