  • The visit is completely spoiled by the lack of normal parking and the attitude of local staff to guests. I categorically do not recommend to visit this snoochel.

  • Honestly, I did not expect that there will be such scale and scope! Hersones was the number 1 place to visit when traveling to Crimea. From what i saw really breathtaking, these stone buildings: powerful and huge ... The whole area is ennobled. They took tickets with visiting exhibitions in museums. We were very pleased!
