Little Intro

I can tell you a lot about Kherson...
I was born there. My grandparents lived there. Still I have relatives who live in Kherson nowdays. And finally I studied in Kherson for 5 years. And it wasn't just only education... it was a huge life experience. But I don't regret it.
A lot of people call it a bandits' city. Hmm... There's some truth in it. But still, don't scratch this little city of your travel list. Maybe you'll like it....

Just several words about...
