- After the boat ride, you will head to the Rostov-on-Don's Opera and Ballet Theatre for a mesmerizing classical music concert. The soft glow of the stage lights, combined with the enchanting music, will surely capture your hearts.
- Following the concert, make your way to a quiet spot near the riverbank. Here, under the star-lit sky and the golden lights of the city reflected in the river, you can talk about your unforgettable date, and perhaps even plan the next one!
- Before the date, make sure to check the boat cruise schedule and book your tickets in advance, as it can get busy during the summer months. Pack a light jacket or shawl, as it might get a bit chilly on the water in the evening. Also, remember to book your concert tickets well in advance to get good seats.
- Arrive at the boat launch a bit early to ensure you don't miss the boat. Allow yourself plenty of time to make your way from the boat ride to the concert venue. It's also a good idea to familiarize yourself with the concert program to fully appreciate the performances.
- Dress comfortably yet elegantly for the date. A boat ride demands casual and comfortable attire, but make sure your outfit is also suitable for the concert. Flat shoes are a must for the boat ride.

- During the boat ride, try to get a seat on the side that faces the city to have the best view. While it's tempting to constantly take pictures, try to put your phone away and truly enjoy the ride and the company of your partner.
- At the concert, be sure to clap at the appropriate times. If you are unsure when to clap, simply wait until the majority of the audience begins clapping. Don't forget to turn off your mobile phone or at least set it to silent mode before the concert starts.
- Lastly, during your late-night conversation, remember to engage your partner. Ask about their thoughts on the date and their favorite parts of the day. This suggests your interest and care towards their feelings, which can significantly enhance the romantic atmosphere.
