Hi

We will be spending 4 months in Rostov-na-danu beginning in September - our first long-term stay in Russia, and the first visit to Rostov. (looking forward to it!). We are hoping to establish some acquaintances before our arrival in order to ease some logistics: housing, services, travel procedures, etc. Any locals from Rostov-na-danu who won't be too bothered by questions, etc? (are there wi-fi hotspots in town? how does one purchase a good red wine? most importantly - is there a McDonalds near the Southern Federal University?) Much obliged.

Mary and John

Hi. I am originally from Rostov and travel back there ocassionally. There are many nice places to eat in. One of them - Rafinad cafe on Pushkinskaya street has free wi-fi. There are a few McDonald's over there. There are many nice liquor store there as well. Ask more. I'll try to help if I can. Just consider that I moved out of Rostov in 1993 :o)

My condolences. I've been to Rostov several times, from Moscow and Krasnodar, in contrary never had any problems. But I'm local. And I have relatives (far ones) and friends/colleagues in Rostov. I'm not so brave, so very probably stupid one. :D

i was poisoned left to die on the black sea - let me guess - you started to drink with people met occassionally?

I have been to Rostov-on-Don several times with business purpose and I can not say that the city is dangerous...

Yes, once we were at one night club and from moscow point of view it was very strange or let's say specific, but nice.

I was there 2 times with foreign bosses (from Austria and Germany), had a 2 hours river cruise (with locals) but everybody was nice (te service was bad).

We have been to another side of the river (full of recreation areas) and it was great even there.

My bosses (germans) did not expect smth good from the city, they were thinking that after WW2 in regions people dislike germans (rostov was occupied).

They say, that there are many criminals there from Cuacasus area, but even when we were at one of the open market (it was specific), people were very hospitable and kind.

Yes, and the taxi drivers were very suspecious even to me, being a russian.

I am sorry, you had a problem, but perhaps, it is not because of the city, but may be because your "fate". :)

Beside I would agree, that from the point of view of tourism Rostov-n-Don is not a good place (nothing to be seen).

Strange though andy from 1999 to 2006 i travelled lived many places in russia i love it i never had 1 problem but iam Australian i will do as i please i live and act 100% as Australian - they did not seem to like this i dont know why? because i lived Azov Kazan , st peters horrible moscow 13 weeks in 2005 and that was 12 weeks too long but still nobody made me a problem .
But that rostov my god i got tangled some people Baumana street you know it drug deceit robbery my god why cant they just go to work and come home honest like every body else ? everything got scam and deceit tied into it money ive grown to hate it.

Iam Aussie if i choose to live other country then we do it my way because if iam in other country iam only there because i know i can do some good help folks i dont need to work ever in life ,!

Aussie does as Aussie please - we dont have a master ( and the mayor can come kiss my arss lol ) i dont want or need work permits / handouts i need nothing i got plenty - iam 52 years if i live to age 110 i could spend $250 a day each day of life iam not going to run out of money !

So if people have a brain ''if you have a person as that he's a walking charity trying to help others '' you dont try rob and kill it do you ? - where is the brains you kill golden goose its gone forever huh = idiots huh !

Deceit scam not allowed near me if i live russia - LETS SEE THIS TIME COMING when i arrive if the militzia turns up plate load of sorry letters from last time huh -- they better behave themselves this time mate - thats for sure !

Best place to go out for a meal in Rostov is in the area on the south bank of the river (ie across the river from the main centre of town). It's an area of cafes, restaurants and bars, mostly flourishing in the summer months, with lots of outdoor eating options. There's a replica old galleon called "Stary Prichal" which is worth visiting (a restaurant).

Although much red wine produced in Russia is really substandard, wines from the Krasnodar region can be really excellent. Look for bottles from the "Cuvee Vostok" winery - they're produced to international standards and are exceptionally good. They aren't, however, appreciably lower-priced than imported French or Italian wines. They are not much exported to the Moscow region though - and are mostly found on sale around their area of production, in better hotels and restaurants.

got to say , as an Aussie, Steve doesnt sound at all like one...and the Gi-joe 52 year old did time in the army stuff is very strange indeed.....he might be an aussie( Hell Bels is a Pom) but his language and his style(words, bravado etc) doesn't match a 52 year old ex army "rich" man at all- certainly not a sane one!

Hey sorry to say mate its stevo here yes ex gi joe chap ,but from 1978/ 81 era long ago - not thats thats anybodies business but mine !

Bravado '' what bravado ? Aussies my generation dont have a boss 47/ 54 age group no way known 90% dead straight and honest - and yes not short of a $ but over where you are the man with the $ is king, and it aint none if them!

I'm a country area born Aussie yup early 50's yes sorry to offend, but we all talk the same - come for a visit you soon find out ! yes the old Ivans land does need a clean up !

Sane im Very sane! but spend a few years in amongst that reverse calculator ( the world owe's us all a living mentality around you ) you soon figure you are very sane, and they are not !

Read it...good intel. worst place i hit was vladavostok. guess i forgot tiblisi when heading to chechnea when garogne was getting hit by 3,500 heavy rounds a day packing a serated knife was a good decision. anyone going to these places should always carry a few cia letter openers. they are plastic so hard you can pound through oak and sharpen to a cutting edge. scanners can't see them. good for apples as well...

love the intel.....charge amigo. what branch were, are you.?

11-04-2010, 09:12
born in Hastings, Mornington peninsula....4 years there,2 in canberra, 15 in Queensland(half north queensland/half brisvegas), rest of the time as a westie in sydney. Plus lived 2 years in England.

branch? If you mean it correctly i was a spook( Electronic warfare Linguist) got bored with it and became a dibbie (Bosun's mate) then switched to firefighter before they ditched us as a class...went back to dibbie for a patrol boat stint then got out.

I live in Volgograd now, near Rostov and can tell you Rostov is a great city and quite green....though their russian accent is more like ukrainian.....i got drink spiked once in russia( in yoshkar ola in 2005) but it has occurred to me more in australia....in yoshkar ola i was being an absolutely idiot hanging around with people i shouldnt....here if i want i can get drunk as a skunk if i want9these days though i rarely drink but still...) and have no problems, same when i was in uzbekistan....worst that can happen drunk is taking home a women with your beer goggles on and be horrified the next day..

Russia is no more dangerous than the west in the big cities....what you don't do in New York or Sydney or London you don't do here...

stevo51
11-04-2010, 09:16
At least you mate know what i'm on about yes - gets downright dangerous that bottom end of Russia - gets nastier as you head over towards Lugansk , i got into Georgia 2005/ 2006 that was interesting !
Another place to give you bad nerves lol - Armenia same huh !

I think most the westies over there mate must live in a cocoon, although i will say my 3 months stint in Moscow long ago i don't know i could not quiet work it out - i seen a couple yanks hiring gaurds - ex soldiers of ex kgb take em shopping 4 suburbs away i looked i thought how rediculous paying somebody to hold your hand lol

I travelled 1 end of Moscow to the other criss crossed it back and forwards metros etc 13 weeks not a single basterd ever made me a moments grief !

But i mean its over rated 1000% - smoke and mirrors - they watch too much tv they think they can live same as in sydney live in double bay but your wage don't match the dole??? - simple maths it don't work huh !

Getting into the bowels of Moscow the places the ''tourists and the westies'' not supposed to be able to see ! well ive never seen such poverty in all my life - its unreal !

Mentality huh they'd scratch out a cheque to do up the palaces for 2 million bux but people live in the park some starve die/ i mean hey its no good having the pritiest palace in the land, if there is no basterd left with the capabilities of paying the 300 Rubles to get into it, because no money / no job again simple maths !

They blow all bux on the shity military what for ? / hey wars over ! gerries lost i mean ''hello '' spend it on the people because without them you have a big percentage of nothing -----------thats a fact, its people number 1 all the rest don't matter a shit !

But i was just trying wise em up to that bottom end of Russia Yoshkar -ola downwards . Krashnadour / Rostov / Taganrog is ok its amazing thats where i have my old place - the radical change in attitudes from say Rostov across to Taganrog 73'ks totally different breed of folks - got me beat? 73'ks can take you into a bit safer world .

You try to like the place but sadly they seem to work against you ? its like him western / him have money / lets have a town meeting try work out how we can take it / its really queer its like ''if you have a $ or wanting to help out with a quid '' its like your not supposed to have it? in their view huh !
YOU ARE THE ENEMY ??? QUEER RACE !

Do you find that ?

I know 1 Aussie lives in Tula 195 odd ks out of Moscow he is a consultant mining crowd in kazac - sometimes away 2/4 weeks a time - he's lived Moscow 11 years he said to me - i'm nice bloke but even after 11 years still times they try rip you off ! he said by god its a hard place to love!!

However he did say look they a bloody ungratefull bunch - because if you took everything western cars/ people / $ / items maccas / subway / food joints all out of Russia ! he said the whole joint would be back to - 1961 tatras and wooden wagons full of cabages in 2 weeks, all go backwards 55 years real quick lol.

His overall view is ok scam / ungratefull / he said they don't apprieciate nothing but hes only one bloke He's entitled to his opinion !
He said upon his arrival back to Aussie after June this year ! he going to write a book on Russia ( his time there ) call it DECEIT lol. i think he will too !

Yes i'm in Aussie now i arrive back Russia end of may ( 29th be exact ) make sure my home still in 1 piece and the local Mafia has not obsconded with it - or filled it up with druggies or prostitutes lol !

Although local mafia little bit of the ''milk bar cowboy'' about them'' in my city '' yell out 'shoo '' they run away you know ! but i often wonder if indeed the real mafia would be silly enough to tackle an Aussie ?- ive not yet heard of one getting a hassle or a pasting there - not in my times anyway !

I must go back each few months check up on it i normally stay 80/ 90 days a time - i dont have work there these days iam 80% retired i just work so a bloke don't go crazy!
I cant stand it here mate Australia full of do wells pollie correct crap i hate it - i like russia - buy your way out of anything - i like a place ''anything can be bought '' lol

I also like to do a tad of ''arthur daly style '' wheeling dealing in Antiques etc - anything thats got a tad of risk attached i love it --long as a bloke don't get hurt - i'd be most pissed off !

And of course there is the crumpet ? and thats number 1 i mean if it was not a cheap joint to live and there was no crumpet there !! well i dunno if i could see any point being there ? lol - after yu seen all museums done all the tours what do you do then ??

I love it those respects i love tormenting the Militia too all in good fun though, but they don't seem to like being called ''fur balls'' lol

where were you in moscow. love the place. sure they might kill you but hey try LA, ha!

That's why I was surprised at the words of his that in Moscow his friend have bloody battles not to be robbed and scammed.

I would say that they guy has VERY specific ways of thinking.

I live here (in Moscow) for ages and travel inside Russia a lot, and Rostov, for example, is not so bad as the guy described it.

So it seems to me that he has smth wrong with his ...., no matter what.

Rostov was home for 5 months and I found it delightful with people who were generous with their time, energy and friendship. Having also traveled the world, it is my experience that you find what you seek. Perhaps I would suggest better taste in women.

rostov is not on my hot list after this forum, ha!

I guess if you believe what's been written by a few drunken wankers, it wouldn't be.

I agree what you say mate ''women not so much my problem '' i'm Australian if i go to another country to do whatever mostly business etc then i exp[ect all to be done the ways iam used to in Aussie , i take my culture with me 1000% in all ways .

Russian ways ok for Russians but i wont give you 2 cents for it - woman hm what do you say they dime a dozen Russia but there us the element of the beggar being the chooser - it dont work ! not with me !

If i'm in Another country doing business buying a place whatever you - then i'm doing it because i'm dead bored in Australia and iam looking for something to do - not because i need money i dont need money i got acres of it so i go help people !

However if an Aussie which i will say is a very special race and much loved ! is going to do that all the risks etc just to give a hand to people - then by god he is going to be looked after in a big way, by the place he visits !

If not then a great injustice is being done to him huh --because he does not have to be there !
Russia mate it needs a lot of help heaps of it clean it up corrupt everything A TO Z i wish i had 15 million bux because i tell you what i would spend every cent of it in Russia trying to do exactly that - convert the place to a but of morality / correct it yes by god i would id be on that plane now 15 million beauty !

There would be no taxi fast enough to get me to the airport - i would get fined for speeding on foot ha lol

Hello, everyone! Sorry for bringing this old thread up, but Steve's story made my evening tonight so I couldn't stand temptation to sign up and add my 50 cents to the discussion.

Steve, I hope you have survived your escapades in the south of Russia. If you ever decide to publish your story as an autobiography, I would be the first in line to buy it :-)

I'm a local Rostovite and have been living here since I was born 30 years ago. It's not the worst place in Russia, that's for sure. Local folks may be more straightforward or even rude than in the other parts of the country, but generally, nothing even close to what Steve described. I feel pretty safe here to drink half night in some strange bar in the center, then spontaneously decide to get some sausages at 2am and enjoy barbeque in the park for the rest of the night without a single accident – something I would not have imagined in the city of the same size in the US.

Let's get frank, Steve. Backed by all your inherited riches, you came here to have more freedom than you could've had in any of the Western countries with their stricter laws and procedures of law enforcement. Here if you have the money, you can neglect the law, have sex with underage girls; live the aussie way, the zulu way or possibly even a cannibal way. You can buy the court and militia. If money is not a problem. With all due respect, you came here to feel yourself a king in the povertyville, neglecting the cultural differences and enforcing your specific way of life. No wonder such an attitude could attract nothing but only sluts and bastards. Don't mention your riches, pretend you're a peace corps volunteer and I'm sure you would attract more adequate and honest people. Good luck! :-)
