The most mystical place in Rostov-on-Don — Zelyony ostrov (“Green Island”). It’s located near the city, in the lower course of the Don river, and divides the river into two arms. It’s long been rumored that ghosts, walking deads, mermaids inhabit the island. The story goes that one day an alien ship wrecked here or a meteorite crashed into the ground. Before the Great Patriotic War the forces of People's Commissariat for Internal Affairs occupied the island and brought something out there in the night. They also tell about some buzzing black stone, which supposedly has a neuropsychic impact: put fear in people’s heart, cause headache and even blackouts. Cherry trees grow on the island, their berries are 4-6 times bigger than normal. There’s a belief that a person who tried that berries falls sick after a while and dies in the throes from an unknown disease. It’s also supposed that rare chemical elements, which aren’t found in a free state on earth, are discovered in the island ground. Witnesses tell they saw will-o-the-wisps, luminous widths, spheres, human-like shadow figures wandering between trees in the night.
