Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Croatia to Russia Tonci Stanicic said he is enjoying his visit to Rostov-on-Don, the home of writer Mikhail Sholokhov. He spoke at a news conference at the Rostov City Press Center.
"This is my first visit to Rostov-on-Don. This place was home to one of my favorite Russian writers, Sholokhov, who wrote the epic novel And Quiet Flows the Don. I am happy to be here," the ambassador said.
Stanicic admitted today he is only interested in football and performance of the Croatian national team in the World Cup. He still hopes to see some local landmarks.
"Tomorrow I want to walk around the city and perhaps visit the Mikhail Sholokhov Museum."
The ambassador added the Rostov Region fascinated him with its beautiful nature.
