Excursion Merchants. Wealth and Intrigues

Excursion Merchants. Wealth and Intrigues

Rostov was often called “Russian Chicago”, “Azov Liverpool” and a merchant town. Asmolov, Maksimov, Suprunov, the Paramonov family were merchants who became famous not only in our region, but also all over the country. They made millions and spent them not only on themselves, but also on charitable causes: they built churches, hospitals, published books for the poor and so on. Our tour is made up of interesting stories, anecdotes and legends from lives of famous merchants: how they started their businesses, how they managed to succeed, how they fought against competitors, whom they left their wealth, how they lived and loved in the 19th century. This excursion is about power, cunningness, fervor and generosity.
