Novocherkassk is a city in Rostov Region, Russia, located near the confluence of the Tuzlov River and Aksay River, the latter a distributary of the Don River. Novocherkassk is best known as the cultural capital of the Cossacks, and as the official capital of the Don Cossacks. Novocherkassk was founded in 1805 by Lieutenant-General Matvei Platov, the Ataman of the Don Cossacks, as the administrative center of the Province of the Don Cossack Host. The city’s population is 168,766 (2017).
Ascension military Patriarchal Cathedral
The main church of the Don Cossacks, was founded on the foundation of Novocherkassk on May 18 (30), 1805, then was built about a century. The Ascension Cathedrall is the third largest Orthodox church in Russia (height 74.6 m) after the Cathedral of Christ the Savior in Moscow and St. Isaac’s Cathedral in St. Petersburg.
Museum of history of Don Cossacks
The Museum of history of Don Cossacks is a museum of art, culture and history of Don Cossacks in Novocherkassk, Rostov oblast, Russia. The oldest museum in Southern Russia, it was founded in 1886. Its collections, of which only 151,000 items is on permanent display, comprise over 200,000 items. The collections occupy a complex of four historic buildings in Novocherkassk: the main building on Atamanskaya street, Memorial House-Museum of painter Ivan Krylov, Memorial House-Museum of painter Mitrofan Grekov and the Ataman palace.
The Ataman Palace (Russian: Атаманский дворец) is an architectural monument in the city of Novocherkassk, Rostov Oblast, Russia, that was built in 1863. It was the official residence of the Ataman of Don Host Oblast and was visited by Alexander II, Nicholas I and Alexander III. It is also officially declared as an object of cultural heritage of Russia.
Novocherkassk Triumphal arches are monuments of Russian classicism. The monumental complex consists of two triumphal arches – western and northern, located respectively in the south-west and north of Novocherkassk. Arches were built in 1817 in honor of the victory in the Patriotic War of 1812, they symbolize the greatness of the contribution of the Don Cossacks in the struggle against Napoleon. Triumphal gates are objects of cultural heritage of federal significance.
Monuments of M.I. Platov
Bronze monument of M.I. Platov on horseback, was installed in Novocherkassk on the central avenue named after him in front of the Ascension Cathedral.
Historically, the first sculptural monument in Novocherkassk was the monument to Matvei Ivanovich Platov, situated in the city center in front of the Ataman Palace in Ataman Square.
Yermak Monument in Novocherkassk ― a sculptural work in honor of Yermak Timofeevich, a Cossack Ataman who began Russia’s conquest of Siberia. The monument is considered to be an object of cultural heritage of federal importance.
