Living in Kherson

Kherson is a city of some 330,000 in southern Ukraine. It is a major port city on the Black Sea and boasts an important shipbuilding industry. The city is dived into three districts or ‘Raions,’ namely the Dnipro Raion, Komsomol Raion and Suvorov Raion. The local population is around three quarters Ukranian, with 20% Russian and the remaining population a mix of nationalities. Kherson is in Ukraine often known as simply the port city on the Black Sea and the city can boast the tallest lighthouse in the country, the Adziogol Lighthouse. The Cathedral of St. Catherine was built in the 1780s and is one of the earliest churches in New Russia. It contains the tomb of Grigory Potemkin, once a trusted confidant of Catherine the Great and the founder of the city. New expatriates in Kherson may be attracted by the ship building industry or opportunities in the local universities, however, regardless of your reason for moving to Kherson, joining the InterNations online community is an excellent way to connect with other expats in Kherson and find out more about your new city.

Moving to Kherson

Kherson has good sea links from its busy port and the railway station has regular connections to Kiev and Lviv. The city is served by Kherson International Airport but the airport at Odessa, approximately 200km to the west, has a greater choice of international connections. The city has plenty of parks and green open spaces and is surprisingly sophisticated for a smaller industrial city. This is possibly due to the presence of four universities in Kherson. These are Kherson State University, Kherson State Agrarian University, Kherson National Technical University and the International University of Business and Law. With a large academic sector, expats moving to Kherson can use the forums and discussion boards of InterNations to connect with this educated class and get some first-hand information on their new home.

Working in Kherson

The main employers in Kherson are the port, the ship building industry and the local universities. This makes for a diverse and educated workforce with great demand especially for well qualified engineers. The city also has a significant retail sector. Work permits are required for most nationalities, except for those expatriates in Kherson who are employed by a foreign company in a representative office in the city. By joining InterNations, expats living in Kherson can network with one another and share experiences of the city and life in Ukraine. These connections could be vital for business opportunities and are a great way of forging new friendships. The resources of the InterNations online community are complemented by the Expat Magazine, where you will find lots of information on the expatriation in general.
