Olympic Torch relay reaches Novocherkassk City
Day 106: The Olympic Torch Relay reaches Novocherkassk City, in the Rostov Region. The city was founded as the capital of Don Cossacks and has retained this unofficial status up to the present day.
In Soviet times the town was re-structured and oriented towards industrial production, in particular – electric locomotives. Now once again the city starts to position itself as the capital of the Russian and even the world Cossack community.
