Taganrog, sights

Чвало Елена Вячеславовна.
МОБУ СОШ № 36, г.Таганрог.

My name is Lena.I am fifteen years old.I love English and I am going to study it all my life because it is very interesting.I live in the city of Taganrog and so I decided to write about my town.

Taganrog is a port city,one of the largest in Rostov region and in the South of Russia.Its old part is situated on Cape Taganiy Rog and,partially on Miusskiy peninsula ,washed by the waters of Taganrog Bay of the Sea of Azov. It may be difficult to think of a more maritime town than Taganrog.No wonder-three quarters of it are surrounded by The Sea of Azov .This is why when asked what kind of town Taganrog is,almost every Taganrog dweller ,or a person who lived there for some time will answer:”First of all,it is a sea town”

THE SIGHTS
