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.

I had such a great time in Ukraine, thanks to your companies driver (Alexis) and tour Guide (Ludmila). If you ever need a reference please let me know. Alex was friendly, reliable, always on time, and made me and my friend Natasha relaxed and comfortable. Ludmila, the interpreter was very interesting, knowledge, and very responsive to all of my questions. She was very easy to understand as her English was excellent.

Thanks again Unipress for making my trip to Ukraine fun, exciting and informative. I hope to return again soon.
