Chersonesos Settlement Open Air Museum

Khersonesus
Operation: year round
Location: Drevnaya Street 1, Sevastopol
Included in the following tours:
 
On the Black Sea shore in the outskirts of modern Sevastopol, the ruins of the ancient polis of Tauric Chersonesos steadily attract scholars from around the world. There is still much room left for the scientific exploration, and lots of fascinating sites to see for general public visitors. Discovered in 1935, the Chersonesos white marble Basilica columns rising at the sea background have become a drawing card of the National preserve, a symbol of the “Ukrainian Pompeii”. Depicted on the Ukrainian 1 hryvna banknotes, the columns address to baptizing of Volodymyr the Great in Chersonesos of the Byzantine epoch.
Ongoing excavation and research works kept unveiling layer after layer the glorious history of the place that had been founded almost two and a half millennium ago. Having had started from the small Dorian settlement somewhere in the 6th century BC, the polis of Tauric Chersonesos has lived a two millennium long life with numbered moments of glory, centuries of prosperity and wellbeing.

Dear Igor and Ramila,

Many many thanks for all your help with booking our Ukraine adventure! We had a fantastic time - five cities in ten days! Your advice and help was much appreciated, especially when we realised that you had managed to book us at least one bottom bunk bed on each of our train journeys! All the hotels were lovely, especially the George in Lviv. We had an amazing time.


Many thanks, Charlotte & Lee Cambridgeshire, UK
