Officially, the city was founded on December 15, 1749, when Empress Elizaveta Petrovna, by her decree, founded Temernitskaya customs.
By decree of Empress Elizabeth Petrovna of August 18, 1749, the customs should have been established in the city of Cherkassk, but the Cossacks considered this impossible.
The Empress, having considered the petition of Danila Efremov, received on November 23, 1749, satisfied the request of the Cossacks and designated a place for customs in the mouth of Temernik in the letter of December 15, from which Rostov-on-Don originated.
This year the city of Rostov-on-Don is 270 years old. And in honor of this, a special logo was developed.
