  • The location of yesterday's outing on which did not prevent even the rain ... Beautiful views, impressive historical monuments, including the Basilica, Bell of Chersonesos, baptism spot of Prince Vladimir. Sensation-the inexpressible ... Clearly, the State historical and archaeological museum-reserve "chersonese tavricheskiy"-is the place where you can literally touch the history ...

  • If you can be in Sevastopol, we strongly recommend to visit chersonese Taurian! Certainly, it is a wonderful place not only for its history, but also energy. Hersonissos is good any time of year, whatever the weather and under any circumstances. Every visitor is sure to find there's something for everyone whether it's rich history of the ancient Greek polis, or the baptism of Prince Vladimir, or simply fantastic seascapes. Visit the Museum for the first time better, but after a tour of the features walk on the ancient streets, visit the temple, go to the exhibition halls (Museum of holograms, Byzantine exposition). This is the place on which it is safe to say: If you haven't been in Chersonesos, Sevastopol was not!
