Odessa is a nice city in the south of Ukraine. It was founded in 1794 by Catherine II, the city rapidly grew and developed.
Odessa is a sea port located on the northwestern shore of the Black Sea. The city has great and very interesting history, nice architecture and sandy beaches.

I live in Odessa and will be glad to answer any of your questions about Odessa and Ukraine.

Here you can see video about Odessa:

Hi!
In historical center I’d advise you to visit Primorskiy boulevard. It is situated in the very heart of the city. There is a beautiful sight at Odessa sea port, harbor and Vorontsovskiy lighthouse. Besides near the boulevard you can see the colonnade of earl Vorontsov’s palace, “Old Odessa corner”, the house with one wall, Catherine II monument, “Teschin” bridge over the gully. The bridge swings when a big company starts jumping at its middle. Near Primorskiy boulevard you can also visit Gogol street, boulevard Jvanetskogo. Potemkin stair, having become worldwide famous due to film “Battleship Potemfin” of Sergey Eisenstein, leads from the sea port straight to Primorskiy boulevard.
I also would advise you to visit French boulevard with its beautiful trees. In XIX there were dachas of Odessa aristocracy, during Soviet Union here were built numerous sanatoriums – it is an excellent resort not far from the city historical center.
