View of Odessa

I highly recommend this tour to everyone as it will give you good chance to visit some of the most interesting places. We will not be in a hurry, just good weather, my knowledge of history, good pictures and your first steps in Derebasovskaja, Primorskiy Boulevard, good pics near the monuments.

We will start our way from Seaport terminal, then funicular will bring us (or if you are not too tired we can do it by legs) to the monument of Duke de Richelieu and to Primorskiy Boulward. Again little more history and our way bring us to Opera House. Big square with fountain, and trees will raise your wish to continue our walk. Lots of married couple likes to make pics here.

Derebasovskaja street, I am sure you heard about it lots of the time but don't wait that you will fall in love with it from the first sign. It will take the time but I am sure that when we come up to the end of our tour, you will back here more and more, with me or by yourself.


This tour will be perfect opportunity to visit the most interesting and well-known places in Odessa. We will start our way from the seaport terminal and end in City Garden. Derebasovskaja street, Statue of J. de Ribas, Primorskiy Boulevard, Potemkin's steps, The Twelth Chair and Duke - all of this places and many, many others you will see and have chance to know it's history.

It will be good walk with small rest for tea or coffee, it will be your first exposure of "Pearl near the Sea". I will give help you to understand the culture of this city, we will see Opera House and you will understand why The Opera and Ballet Theatre is considered as one of the most beautiful theatre in the world.

If you have wish we will end our tour in one of the most popular Ukrainian restaurant "Ukrainskaja Lacynka", where you can taste national Ukrainian dishes.
