I'm doing a research report on Rostov Veliky for a Geography class. I have no experience in Russian and I lack understanding of geography in general. The map refers to it as Poctov and I can not translate it into English using google, I tried.
I can only guess but is this the Russian word for Rostov, why wouldn't it use Russian characters? If not please explain what it is. If it is, please let me know if Russians would call Rostov Veliky, Poctob Veliky.
Sorry, very confused here.
