Interesting places of Kherson
Now it is the largest river port on the Dnieper and a seaport. The city has preserved many old buildings, and it is also one of the greenest cities in Ukraine, despite the fact that it is located on the steppe expanses. So, where can you go in Kherson.
1. Beach "Hydropark".
In Hydropark you can visit the local menagerie. Peacocks, foxes, black pigs, a wolf live in it, what is most interesting, the birds move freely around the park and it is noticeable that they are being looked after. There is also a beach with clean sand, umbrellas where you can sunbathe if you wish. In addition, there are various paths on which you can walk. There are more than enough excellent places for tents.

One of the most beautiful places in Kherson is the Park of Glory, which hosts annual citywide events in memory of the fallen heroes of the Great Patriotic War.
The majestic memorial complex is located on the banks of the Dnieper. Its main avenue descends to the river, from where a delightful panorama opens up.

3. Fountains of Kherson Fortress Park
If you are a fan of beautiful fountains, then you should definitely visit them.
Near the beautiful fountains there is a small amusement park. You can ride on a Ferris wheel. The price seems to be 40 UAH.
4.Museum of nature.
Today, the museum houses unique collections of insects, reptiles, fish and birds. Also here you can get acquainted with representatives of the underwater world, see exotic mammals. In addition to regular excursions, fruitful research work is carried out here, in which both Ukrainian and foreign scientists take part.
The most interesting exhibit for visitors is the skeleton of a 25-meter fin whale, the second longest animal in the world after the blue whale. Fin whales also belong to cetaceans. This whale was caught off the coast of Antarctica in the middle of the 20th century by Soviet whalers. Graduates of the Kherson Naval School, who sailed on ships of whaling fleets, presented this whale to Kherson. Today, fin whales are endangered. The skeleton occupies almost the entire second floor of the museum.
All the exhibits are so huge, almost like real ones, I didn’t want to see them live.
Like in a real forest.
There is a small room with a theme dedicated to circumnavigation. The cost of the museum is 40 UAH.

5. Tourist coffee house Kherson
Tourist coffee shop in Kherson is a center that combines tourism, history, southern atmosphere, the best sweets, delicious tea and coffee.
A cafe with a special atmosphere, here you will be offered Dawn coffee (filtered with orange syrup and red pepper) and a line of coffee drinks "for adults": Pirate, Romance or Sunset. This is in addition to the usual types of coffee, we recommend trying Kherson tea, with a pleasant aftertaste. The choice of sweets is simply amazing, with their creative approach, the guys will tell in detail about everything that is on display. I liked eclairs and meringues with berries.
The highlight of this institution is the organization of various types of excursions, ranging from kayaks to trips on a sailboat or paragliding, the prices are affordable. We believe that such a cafe should be in every city of Ukraine.
