Chersonese can be reached both by car and by public transport – buses # 22 and # 10 leave every half an hour. Only three kilometers and here you are, on the territory of the old Greek polis: antique nature and white columns of ancient temples around you. In museum and preserve Tauric Chersonese you can have a tour along the remains of the Greek city – walk along the main street, take a look at the old theatre ruins, admire mosaic that used to be simply the floor, remember something from Homer and tell the story of Odyssey to the columns.
The Saint Vladimir Cathedral will tell the story of the last several centuries. It was built in honor of Christianity adoption by knyaz Vladimir. A magnificent building has seen a lot on its age and was partially ruined, but now it looks like its original variant – with murals, dusky coolness of vaults and calming church service.
And after a day at the ancient city, you can go down to the local beach Solnechniy, take a bottle of bought in advance “Stariy Chesonese” and meet the sunset as the ancient Greeks, Byzantines, and Venetians did.
