Things to do in Kherson

A favourite holiday destination for both Ukraine locals and foreigners alike, Kherson is known for its attractive resorts, the sea and its beaches. It also has a historical centre, which retains the look of a 19th century city. There are also historical landmarks like the Moscow Gate, the Ochakiv Arch, remains of the Kherson Fortress and the Cathedral of St. Catherine. The city is a perfect example for the diversity and hospitality which can be found in south Ukraine.


One of the first wildlife reserves in Europe, Askania-Nova dates back to a time in the 19th century when a local baron decided to begin importing exotic animals to his home the Tavrian steppes. This location is now a 520 acre park, which is home to wild horses, zebras, South Asian and African antelopes, and a huge variety of birds.

The Ochakovsky

Known also as Western gate, the Ochakovsky was once the main entryway to the city and is one of the remaining features of the Kherson Fortress. The gate is the city’s best-known historic structure, and dates back to the late 18th century. It was part of the fortress, which was mostly destroyed in 1921.

St. Catherine’s Cathedral

One of the oldest churches in Southern Ukraine, St. Catherine’s Cathedral is a sandstone building that dates back to the 1780s. During the Soviet era it was used as a museum of atheism and then converted to a storehouse in the 1960s. It was reclaimed by the Russian Orthodox Church after the fall of the Soviet Union and now serves its original purpose as a house of worship. The tomb of Prince Gregory Potemkin can be found in the Tuscan portico, which leads into the church.

Pink Lake (Syvash Lake)

Located in the village of Hryhorivka, this pretty pink lake called the Ukrainian Dead Sea by locals, is famed for its therapeutic qualities. This saltwater lagoon is now a recreational site that draws people from all over to its beauty and therapeutic mud. The unusual colour of the lake is said to be caused by the water plants that bloom in the salty environment of the lake. This location attracts up to 10,000 visitors annually and it is sometimes called the Rotten Sea.

Kherson Cuisine

Ukrainian dishes have origins from different countries, however, they have evolved to be uniquely ukrainian, each in their own way. Some dishes you would come across include, golubtsi, stuffed cabbage rolls of meat and rice filling, usually served with sour cream. There is also holodets, a jelly-like dish of meat broth made from pork leg. Holodets has a strong aroma and delicious taste.  Another one is nalisniki, a sweet dish, which is similar to pancakes, but much thinner and usually wrapped around a filling of raisins and cottage cheese.
