  • Hersonissos is definitely worth a visit, being in Sevastopol. Take a walk, watch, take pictures with the Bell, which is known to many images on the Internet and already quite opopsel in social networks)) and yet his name is Misty Bell and it has quite an interesting history. The Bell was cast in the city of Taganrog in 1778 from Turkish cannons taken as a trophy. Patrons of sailors are depicted on it in the afternoon. Nicholas and St. Foka. After the Crimean War, 13 bells from Sevastopol as trophies were taken in Europe. In 1913, one of them was found hanging in the famous Cathedral of Notre Dame (Notre-Dame de Paris). This became known to the French Consul in Sevastopol, L.i. GE, who offered to bring back Bell. 23 November "Bell-prisoner" arrived in Sevastopol. While the weather was used as a Bell. There are more things to see, uvarov Basilica etc However, come see it yourself)
