Kherson region is a truly unique place in the south of Ukraine. There are so many things here: amazing nature, history, warm climate. Here you will find unique corners and attractions that you will not find anywhere else. About 800 km of coastline and TWO seas! 77 salt, pink and mud lakes - they will be discussed separately in the article. In the Kherson region you will find about 50 green tourism bases, the longest sandy spit in Europe and even a desert! I hope my guide to the Kherson region will motivate you to travel around your native country!

Reserves of the Kherson region

Askania-Nova Biosphere Reserve

Black Sea Biosphere Reserve

Azovo-Sivash National Natural Park

Landscape reserve Stanislavsky

National Park "Nizhnedneprovsky"

Askania-Nova Biosphere Reserve

The Askania-Nova Reserve is a truly unique place where the virgin steppe has been preserved. A separate post about it can be found here - Askania-Nova Reserve: how to get there, prices, reviews. Sights of Kherson region

Amazing places of Kherson region

1. Aleshkiv sands - a desert in Ukraine

The fact that there is a desert in Ukraine already sounds exotic, you must agree! And yes, she is. Popularly called the Ukrainian Sahara, but there are several other names - Aleshkovsky sands, Aleshkovsky sands, Oleshkovsky sands, Nizhnedneprovsky sands. They spread 30 km from Kherson on an area of ​​162,000 hectares (1620 km²).The ideal time for a trip is spring and autumn, until the sand has warmed up to summer 50-70 degrees. How to get there and what to do I told in a separate post on the Oleshkovsky Sands blog. How to get there and what to do in the desert

2. Dzharylgach - the largest island in the country

Knowledgeable people claim that Jah Island is heaven on earth. It is here that you have a chance to retire with nature and relax like a savage. The island is located in the Kherson region, directly opposite Skadovsk. From the side of Azure, it is separated from the land by a narrow strait, which is sometimes covered with sand, turning the island of Dzharylgach into a peninsula.

The easiest way to get there is from Skadovsk (boats run regularly), you can come for 1 day, or you can stay for the whole summer with a tent. In addition to the amazing nature, the attraction of the island are 2 lighthouses - old and new.

There are 3 ways to get to Dzharylgach:

1. From Skadovsk on a large boat (it costs less, it takes longer)

2. From Skadovsk on small boats (more expensive, faster)

3. From Lazurny, wade/sail by boat

Where?

1. Pier Glubokaya (cheaper, but a couple of kilometers to the sea side on foot under the scorching sun)

2. Lighthouses (more expensive, but 2 lighthouses, a spring and you can choose where to relax: from the sea side or from the bay)

In 2019, the fare to the lighthouses in both directions 240 UAH.

3. Waterfalls in the steppe of Kherson

Kherson region is a very dry region of the country, there are 275 sunny days a year, can you imagine? It is for this reason that waterfalls in the dry steppe are a unique phenomenon. They are located in the territory of Cossack, Berislavsky district, near the ruins of the castle of Prince Trubetskoy. The complex has more than 1200 small and large sources of various capacities.

4. Lake Sivash and Lemurian Lake

Sivash is a system of shallow bays and lakes in the west of the Sea of ​​Azov. The Sivash is the border between the Kherson region of Ukraine and the Crimea. It has 11 salty and bitter-salty bays. Lake Sivash is an amazing place! especially well dried lakes in the summer - fields of white salt. Sometimes Sivash acquires a pinkish tint.

By the way, Lemurian Lake (Dead Sea of ​​Ukraine) nestled next to Sivash. I have compiled a separate post about Lemurian Lake, as it deserves your attention – Lemurian Pink Lake is an analogue of the Dead Sea in Ukraine

5. Pink Lake in the Kherson region

In fact, there are several such lakes in the Kherson region (for example, the Lemurian Lake mentioned above). But the most epic and large-scale pink lake in the south of Ukraine is located near the city of Genichesk in the village of Priozernoe on the Arabat Spit. This is the pinkest lake I have ever seen!

6. Kinburn Spit and salt mine

Kinburn Spit is the pearl of the Nikolaev and Kherson regions. Everything is perfect here, especially the number of people in comparison with the beaches of Koblev and Odessa.

7. Recreational area Arabat Spit

Many of us in childhood were taken to rest on the Arbat Spit to the warm Sea of ​​\u200b\u200bAzov. A well-warmed shallow sea, healing algae, developed infrastructure - all this is understandable. But besides this, Arabatka will blow its tourists with such wonders of the world as geysers and terminal springs, salt and pink lakes, Sivash, ATV rides and much more! As usual, a separate blog post about our vacation on the Arabat Spit - Arabat Spit: a guide

8. Picking Island

The Biryuchy Island Spit is essentially a part of the Fedotova Spit, which is separated from the land by a small isthmus. It becomes an island during periods of autumn showers. The spit is interesting for its flora and fauna. This is the territory of the reserve, so access there is closed. You can get there with a tour group or by renting accommodation in one of the hotels on the spit. From the curious - the old lighthouse.

9. Geysers and terminal springs of the Kherson region

Geothermal source in Schastlivtsevo (free of charge)

Geyser in the Iron Port (Obloi)

Hot spring in Bekhteri village

Hydropathic "Hot Dzherelo" in Genichesk Hill

source in Strelkovoe (free of charge)

Geyser in the Iron Port (Obloi)

In Soviet times, oil was searched for on the shelf of the Black Sea. We drilled very deep - a powerful stream of thermal water struck. It turned out that they did not find oil, so the well was covered with a metal plug and buried. In the 90s, metal seekers found a large metal cork and opened it - a “geyser” hit from under the ground. Now it is a wonderful relaxation attraction - an open-air thermal pool, the water temperature in which never drops below +42. On the signs they write "healing Spring". Heals everything.

The complex is small and very specific, because it's just a mine, around which they made a wooden flooring and locker booths, without doors. The water is saturated with iodine and some other elements. People come out of there brown. Locals say that people from all over the country go to the "geyser" for healing. In summer, there is nowhere for an apple to fall and a real hell, but in cold weather, the geyser is very pleasant. It's just that the infrastructure is terrible.

10. Tendrovskaya braid

The Tendrovskaya Spit is a protected and hard-to-reach part of the Black Sea Biosphere Reserve. And, they say, the most beautiful part of the coast. Wild horses, ancient May, the longest sandy beach in Ukraine - that's why Tendrovskaya Spit was considered a favorite place of the ancient Greeks and Scythians.

Tendrovskaya Spit is luxurious: deserted clean beaches, lagoon lakes, many rapans - a shore strewn with shells. This is one of the few places in the country where wild horses live. You can see them in the morning when they come to the lighthouse for a drink. This 30-meter lighthouse is the oldest in the Kherson region, built in 1827. The territory of Tendra is part of the Black Sea Biosphere Reserve.

11. Plavni of the Kherson region and kayaks

Kayaking in Kherson Plavni often takes place along narrow reed channels (eriks) with many twists and turns. It's very beautiful and exciting!

12. Kherson mountains

Kherson Mountains is one of the top attractions in the region recently and a popular destination for excursions from Kherson. In fact, these are artsy cliffs on the banks of the Dnieper-Bug estuary.

Beach holidays in the Kherson region

They say that there are 5 seas in the Kherson region: the Black, Azov, Kakhovskoe (after all, the width of the reservoir is 8 km), Rotten (Sivash) and the steppe sea. Let's see what resorts you can visit on the Black and Azov Seas:

Among all the agricultural diversity of the Kherson region, there are several special places. For example, the village of Lyubimovka. There, on the initiative of his wife Larisa and Carl Boden (the founder of the Chumak company), they were the first in Ukraine to grow the most expensive spice in the world - saffron, exotic asparagus at that time, planted a field of tulips, a large plot of lilies, lavender and sage also grow. Organized groups are not taken to Lyubimovka, but tourists will be met and individually allowed to enter the flowering fields. Also, depending on the season, you can buy tulip and saffron bulbs, its stigmas, asparagus and more.

Historical sights of Kherson region

The Kazikermen Way is one of the oldest roads not only in the Kherson region, but also in Ukraine. This road remembers the Scythians, Sarmatians, Goths, Huns, Pechenegs, Polovtsians, Tatars, Lithuanians, Turks and Zaporozhian Cossacks. And there are a lot of ancient monuments here. Little-known now Berislav is one of the oldest cities in Ukraine. At the turn of our era, there was the main city of the late Scythians - Metropolis, and in the 4th century - the capital of the Gothic state Danparstadir, which was sung in the Old Norse epic "Elder Edda".

...

Falz-Fein crypt

Crypt of the kings of the Taurian steppes - the Falz-Fein family. The crypt stands on a mound and even in such a ruined state it has an incredible view.

The mound overlooks the valley. I did not go into the crypt itself, it is still someone's last refuge, although inside there is nothing but an icon.

Alexander Faltz-Fein (I think there is no need to tell who it is?) Built a crypt for his wife Sophia, who died at the age of 38. At first, everything inside the budo was decorated with white marble, which was brought on ships from Italy. Subsequently, the landowner himself also rested in the crypt.

Watch tower (Vytautas tower)

near the village of Cossack

better to combine with a trip to the Trubetskoy winery

The Vytautas Watchtower is of constant interest to true history buffs. The tower was built at the end of the 14th century, at a time when the southwestern part of modern Ukraine was under the rule of the Grand Duke of Lithuania Vitovt. A border line ran along the right bank of the Dnieper, and customs was located on the already flooded island of Tavan. Nearby, on the right bank, a watch tower rose into the sky, from which they controlled the southern part of the island.

Already in the 80s of the 19th century, a fourth tier with lancet windows in pseudo-Gothic style was added to the tower. Then Prince Pyotr Nikolayevich Trubetskoy converted the tower into a water tower. Now it is not used.

Bizyukov Monastery

Kherson region, Berislav district, with. Chervony Lighthouse, st. Central, 3

GPS coordinates 46.954 689, 33.606 301

St. Grigorievsky Bizyukov Monastery has a long and interesting history. Back in 1782, Prince Grigory Alexandrovich Potemkin, in gratitude to Abbot Theodosius for the help provided during the Russian-Turkish war, allocated land for a monastery for monks. In the first half of the 19th century, the land area of ​​the monastery was already more than 25,000 acres. There were 70 capital structures on its territory.

In 1918, the monastery was closed and partially destroyed, the remains of the valuables were later taken out by the fascist invaders. The walls with towers, the gates, the winter Pokrovsky Cathedral, the refectory, the bishops' chambers, the Spasskaya (now Pokrovskaya) Church, fountains, and a number of outbuildings have survived to this day. The restoration of the monastery began in the early 90s of the last century and continues to this day. This place just breathes history!

      St. Grigorievsky Bizyukov Monastery has a long and interesting history. Back in 1782, Prince Grigory Alexandrovich Potemkin, in gratitude to Abbot Theodosius for the help provided during the Russian-Turkish war, allocated land for a monastery for monks. In the first half of the 19th century, the land area of ​​the monastery was already more than 25,000 acres. There were 70 capital structures on its territory.

      In 1918, the monastery was closed and partially destroyed, the remains of the valuables were later taken out by the fascist invaders. The walls with towers, the gates, the winter Pokrovsky Cathedral, the refectory, the bishops' chambers, the Spasskaya (now Pokrovskaya) Church, fountains, and a number of outbuildings have survived to this day. The restoration of the monastery began in the early 90s of the last century and continues to this day. This place just breathes history!
