Included in the following tours:
 
On the Black Sea shore in the outskirts of modern Sevastopol, the ruins of the ancient polis of Tauric Chersonesos steadily attract scholars from around the world. There is still much room left for the scientific exploration, and lots of fascinating sites to see for general public visitors. Discovered in 1935, the Chersonesos white marble Basilica columns rising at the sea background have become a drawing card of the National preserve, a symbol of the “Ukrainian Pompeii”. Depicted on the Ukrainian 1 hryvna banknotes, the columns address to baptizing of Volodymyr the Great in Chersonesos of the Byzantine epoch.
Ongoing excavation and research works kept unveiling layer after layer the glorious history of the place that had been founded almost two and a half millennium ago. Having had started from the small Dorian settlement somewhere in the 6th century BC, the polis of Tauric Chersonesos has lived a two millennium long life with numbered moments of glory, centuries of prosperity and wellbeing.

When I began planning my trip to Odessa I knew nothing about travel to Europe let alone Eastern Europe. Some of the stories I had heard and read made me a little nervous but when I found Unipress BTD all my worries were handled for me with a personal touch I'm not accustomed to in the US. I found Odessa a wonderful and beautiful city. I have been to Odessa twice now and both times with first rate service and no problems, I could never ask for better service at a very reasonable price. My next trip to Odessa will begin with an E-mail to Tanya and Igor. Thanks for the help in making my trips a success.
