Ruins of Tauric Chersonese, Crimeia - UKRAINE - UNESCO #1411

This official card came from Sevastopol in Ukraine showing the beautiful Tauric Chersonese. Thank you very much Natalia, I'm very glad you picked a new UNESCO postcard for my collection (I already have from this site, but different). This postcard took 14 days to arrive!
  
UNESCO #1411 - Ruins of Tauric Chersonese, Crimeia - UKRAINE
 
Tauric Chersonese and its chora are the remains of an ancient city, founded in the 5th century BCE as a colonial settlement of the Dorian Greeks, located on the Heraclean Peninsula in south-west Crimea. It features several public building complexes and residential neighbourhoods, as well as early Christian monuments alongside remains from Stone and Bronze Age settlements; Roman and medieval tower fortifications and water supply systems; and exceptionally well-preserved examples of vineyard planting and dividing walls.
