Kherson Things to Do

    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...

  • beautiful women

    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.

  • Help the poor

    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...

Kherson Warnings and Dangers

    Now the situation in Ukraine in general is unstable. Kherson is close to Crimea and supplies water and electricity to Crimea. I am advised by friends in Kherson that it is not safe to visit. Cars are stopped on the highway and things are unpredictable and lawless. I hope the situation in the country stabilises soon, but it does not look likely.

    * Don't go anywhere in Kherson alone when it's dark;* A lot of streets in Kherson don't have street lights at night;* Don't drink water straight from the tap(only boiled);* A lot of areas in Kherson have got their water (cold) by hours;* Watch your pockets and luggage;* If I were you I wouldn't trust marriage agencies to much.....

Kherson Off The Beaten Path

  • by chucky555 Written Feb 12, 2007

    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!
