Traveling in Ukraine is the best way not only to have a great rest, to discover something new, but also to get to know your country better. Indeed, in its open spaces you can see almost all the natural wonders of the world: the immense sea and quiet lakes, mountain peaks and noisy waterfalls, restless rivers and mysterious forests, magnificent rocks and fantastic canyons, mysterious caves and velvet deserts, flowering meadows and uninhabited islands, a volcano and craters.
Therefore, given the abundance of natural wealth, it is not at all surprising and even logical that domestic tourism is rapidly developing in Ukraine.
Every year more and more tourist complexes of the European level appear, sanatoriums, attractions, dolphinariums, hotels are opening. Accordingly, all this allows travel agencies to organize holidays in Ukraine for all comers all year round.
At the same time, it is absolutely not important that you are a supporter of eco-tourism, extreme or quiet and measured hanging out with your family and friends.
Natural attractions of the Kherson region
If you consider interesting tourist places of Ukraine for summer holidays, then you should pay attention to the popular resorts of the Kherson region, where it is possible to have a great free time. The clean and warm sea, snow-white beaches, sea air with useful minerals, geysers and terminal sources of the Kherson region all create excellent conditions for families with children. Ved Kherson region is an ideal tourist place for family travel and comprehensive rehabilitation.
A real pearl of the south of Ukraine, that’s what they say about tourist Kherson.
A lot of ecologically clean natural recreational resources are concentrated here, which not only amaze with their uniqueness and beauty, but are not found anywhere else.
And this is not at all surprising, because the region is washed by the Black and Azov Seas, which is characteristic of the only region in Ukraine.
This feature allows you to develop beach tourism and actively work on increasing the tourist flow to local residents and entrepreneurs.
Moreover, nature itself provides an opportunity to move in this direction, since the location of the region has more than 800 kilometers of coastline, almost 80 salt and mud lakes, many geysers and terminal sources.
For supporters of green tourism, the expanses of the Kherson region will be a good choice, since everyone can retire to the longest sand spit in Europe – the Arabat Arrow or book an exciting excursion into the desert, which is well known as the Aleshka Sands National Nature Park.

These include: Lemurian lake, Uninhabited island Dzharylgach and Biryuchiy, Tendrovskaya spit, Dnieper Delta or Aleshkovsky forest.
If your goal of a summer vacation is solitude away from the hustle and bustle of the unique flora and fauna, then the best reserves of the Kherson region are at your service: Askania-Nova Reserve, Black Sea Biosphere Reserve or Stanislavsky Landscape Reserve.
Perhaps it is important to note that over 80 objects are concentrated in the Kherson region, which are among the nature reserve fund of Ukraine and are protected by law.

Accordingly, staying in the local region you will have the opportunity to both bask in the snow-white beach, and to beat in places that are of great importance in the history of our people and not only.
Indeed, local historians and historians, studying the ruins and artifacts found during archaeological excavations, were able to prove that they once lived and actively lived here: Scythians, Huns, Pechenegs, Tatars, Turks, Polovtsy and Zaporozhye Cossacks.
Centuries have passed, much has remained clogged, but still pieces of history that are scattered in various parts of the Kherson region vividly remind the modern generation of the high price of freedom, life values, devotion and heroism.
