Rostov the Great is 202 kilometres (126 mi) northeast of Moscow.It was first mentioned in historical records in 862, and while there are two Rostovs in Russia (the other one being Rostov-on-Don), this one is heralded 'The Great,' because, though smaller, it is older and more venerated for its epic Kremlin.
