Stanitsa Starocherkasskaya – The Don Pearl

Stanitsa Starocherkasskaya is well known in Russia as the old Cossacks capital and hometown of Matvey Platov - the Ataman of the Don Cossacks Army.

Vosnesensky Cathedral is the Don’s first orthodox cathedral - has been founded here in the XVIII century, with its hip-roofed bell tower and 5-row wooden iconostasis. On the Cathedral’s wall you will find the chain of Stepan Razin’s who was the famous Russian rebel.

Another great experience is the Cossack initiation ceremony – at the end you will get a diploma, Cossack sheepskin hat (papakha) and a whip.
