Another place to visit in Sevastopol is Chersonesus ( Khersonesos ) A city with almost two thousand years history was founded in 442-421 B.C. by inhabitants of the other Greek colony – Heraclea. Within a century Chersonesus, a slave-holding republic with the democratic form of ruling, turned into one of the biggest – the City-State of the Northern Black Sea Region. Its population has reached 20 thousand people. Since the 5th century A.D. Chersonesus had been a part of Byzantine Empire.

In 988 the city was conquered by Prince Vladimir. Here Vladimir has adopted Christianity. At the end of the XII-XIV century Chersonesus suffered from the Tatar Hordes attacks twice. In the middle of the XV century the city stopped existing. While visiting the preserve you can see the ruins of an antique theater – the only one in our country, – the city blocks, an area of defensive walls with the Zenone Tower and many more. The main thing about Chersonesus is the special atmosphere you can feel there! Peaceful, calm and tender.

If you are an early bird and can wake up at around 6.30 am, so as to be at Chersonesus around 7.00 am… you’ll make lot’s of wonderful shots! cause at this time of the day grannies and grandfathers are visiting the beach in Chersonesus ))) and it’s a the special picture – many many sun-tanned, happy, active old women and men swimming, chatting and doing exercises on the beach near the ancient ruins and columns))) that’s a spectacular view!
