Kherson is a major sea harbour town in Southern Ukraine. It sits in the river delta of the Dniepr river, where it mounts into the Black Sea.


About 350,000 people live in Kherson, many of whom work in the extensive ship-building industry and harbour activities.

The city is well reachable by train, with connections to Dnipropetrovsk, Simferopol, Charkiw and Moscow. It's served by Kherson International Airport, but other useful airports in the region are Odessa Airport, Kisinev Airport (best reached via Palanca), and of course Kiev airport. From Odessa, there are direct minibuses and (far more expensive) taxis to Kherson.
