Fodor's Expert Review The Ochakovsky Gate

Kherson Ruins

Kherson's best-known historic structure, the Ochakovsky (or Western) Gate is one of the few remaining features of the Kherson Fortress, much of which was destroyed in 1921. Dating back to the late 18th century, this imposing gate once served as the main entryway to the city, and while the surrounding walls are now mostly in ruins, there is a small placard (in English) detailing what the fortress looked like back in its 1792 heyday.
