Delta Dnipra

Reviewed By ZTDaoq - Paris

Прекрасная база отдыха с невероятными пейзажами и со всем спектром услуг для отдыха у реки.Мы сняли Vip-коттедж для отдыха с семьёй на 2 ночи,все бы слаживалось замечательно если бы не сплошные запреты на территории базы...цены достаточно высокие,мы думаю как многие постояльцы привезли с собой кое какие закуски и спиртные напитки.Как оказалось на базе отдыха Дельта Днепра запрещено распивать свои смертные напитки и даже закуску в виде креветки нам настоятельно рекомендовали кушать в номере(!)в беседке нельзя.(прошу заметить об этом на сайте нигде не указанно)
Что касается беседок если вы снимаете себе Vip-коттедж то не рассчитывайте на то что вы можете пообедать либо поужинать в беседке так нужна предварительная резервация и далеко задолго до заезда.
Детское меню это отдельная тема.Прежде чем заказать ребёнку вареники с картошкой я уточнила их сейчас будут готовить либо они в заморозке так знаю что в вареники с картошкой часто кладут лук,ребёнок не любит.Официант сказала что все у них свежее и я попросила раз уж вы их сейчас слепите то не добавлять лук.Вареники конечно же были с луком и выглядели не то что бы не первой свежести так ещё и полу сырые...ребёнок остался без ужина.
Цены в меню почему то гораздо выше чем по кассовому аппарату,например уха стоит 180гривен,чек выбит как по 80 гривен а итоговая стоимость как по 180)интересно почем же уха?!))
Номера хорошие,чистые и уютные.Не могу не отметить прогулки на катере,семья в восторге

Park of Glory (Park Slavy)

Reviewed By Vadym P - Kherson, Ukraine

Memorial complex dedicated to WWII.
Kind of Communist "propaganda" remaining from the Soviet Union times.
Poor maintained.
Same time worth to see and enjoy a fantastic view to the Dnieper River and it's wild nature at left bank locally called "plavnyi".
Do not go there in hot weather as it has no shelters or any facilities

Monument to the Shipbuilders

Reviewed By normandic - Groningen

The monument is located where the Main Street meets the river Dnieper. From the monument you have an excellent view over the river and a part of the port. An excellent place to visit if you have a walk through Kherson.

Kherson Regional Local Lore Museum

Reviewed By Carpetblogger - Nice, France

Some of these local museums are hit or miss, but this one offers a very complete overview of the local environment, which, given that Kherson is on huge estuary, is very rich. Like all good Soviet museums, it has a lot of taxidermy and not all of it is decaying. I wish I understood more of the labels, because there really is a lot covered. Also has WWII exhibits -- same issue.

Kherson Regional Art Museum

Reviewed By daisylouwho - Copperas Cove, Texas

Really loved the artwork from the Soviet and post-Soviet Era by the same artists. It was intriguing to see the freedom they felt when the fear of censorship was lost and you could really see a different in the artwork. It is not huge so it really is possible to get a in-depth visit in in an afternoon. The staff are very friendly and accomodating, the temporary esxhibits were delightful. Mostly a more modern styl but also some lovely pre-Soviet works along Impressionistic lines on the top floor.
