A town with numerus parks and gardens
Not enough places to stay / bad transportation
A great city if you are looking for a wife, not a tourist trap
Kherson is a city in my experience, of lovely people who have an environment which is a struggle economically, whilst the political situation is corrupt and the Government provides few opportunities whilst the country has so much potential of industry, hard working people and agriculture.Children without homes is a big problem everywhere in Ukraine...more
The place is loaded with hot, single women. Why you ask? The economy is bad and many people are out of work. many of the men have left for work in Western Europe as taxi drivers, construction wokers, etc. I meet a Canadian man and all we had to do was walk down the street speaking English. The women are very nice, friendly, and attractive.more
So many hars working people got shafted after parastroika, my wife included. You will see people everywhere with a cup or a hand out, they will not hassle you like the bums in Chicago. They are very proud people in need, I gave away a lot of money to these, mostly retired people. I hope you will do the same. I remember giving an old woman 10...more
If you have little time, I do not believe there is a single attraction that stands out in the city. The pedestrian areas and the parks are nice, and just walking around the city is already an experience in itself.Seeing the naval students strolling around the city in their uniforms, watching the shop stalls in the streets, going to the bazar......more

Kherson has a lot to offer for party goers. Although the streets are relatively quiet at night, with most restaurants and pubs closing at around 11 pm, there are a couple of food joints that are open all night.I was really surprised to find a club like the Millenium in a small city like Kherson. Good music, modern amenities, separate restaurant...more

Bus schedules are available on the internet, and it seemed like a nice and cheap plan.Inside...more

Interesting experience, but very distracting situations. Everyone's cell phones ring constantly, and they just answer them and start talking. The girls all where high heeled boots and you can hear the clomping as they walk up and down the aisles. Bring your coat and gloves if you're watching a movie in the wintertime, the heat is turned off! My legs and feet were numb from the cold by the end of the film. Watching the movie isn't near as much fun as observing all of the side actions from the audience, enjoy!

I remember having a walk in downtown Kherson.I payed attention to numerous advertisements and boards like this one intended to advertise a political party called 'Apple' whose emblem is a pineapple. The word 'pineapple' sounds in Russian like the beginning of the phrase 'It will not let us down'.more
