Southern Gates

No viruses

Southern (Ochakiv) Gates is located in the southwestern part of Kherson Fortress park in the vicinity of “Yuvileinyi” cinema and concert hall.

It got its name after the road leading from the fortress to Ochakiv. Moscow and Ochakiv gates are almost identical.

The architectural style of early classicism gives a triumphal look to the building: a strict pediment is decorated with pilasters and attic. The use of limestone in the construction preserved the historical monument almost in its original form.

Ochakiv gates

This gate of Kherson fortress is depicted on the emblem of the city as well as on the commemorative coin “70 years of Kherson Region” issued by the National Bank of Ukraine in 2014.
