The central part of the city is very nice. Don't miss Opera house, it's one of the most beautiful opera houses in Europe.
Apart of that you might take a trip to Odesa catacombes but if you like such things. Mind you it can be dangerous, never ever leave the group, quite often people get lost there.

A boat trip from the central ship station to Arkadia can be nice, if the weather is nice of course :).

Travel Tips for Odessa

The Past and the Present

by bilgeez

This is a typical housing block in Odessa, these are Soviet-era apartment buildings. This particular building was built in 1967, it seems older because of the spartan construction and that they were not all that well maintained over the years. This building had newly painted walls in the stairwells, the security doors work and the lights in the stairwells weren't burned-out, and it isn't leaking water or sewage, so it is in much better shape than many others! The city is trying to replace these aging relects to socialism, but it will be a long process because many of the owners of these apartments can't afford new one's and would rather stay in these, albeit they usually stink, either from sewage or mold and/or mildew, and are falling apart. Many of the owners enclose the balconies to help with keeping the apartment warm in winter. Most of these apartments have newer, insulated, euro-windows, but the buildings are still drafty and chilly. Most have central, hot water heat, that is not reliable, the radiators rarely get too hot to touch. Since this is also the hot water supply for the apartment, many have auxilliary hot water heaters because the hot water is usually not hot enough to bathe or wash with. Also electric and telephone service is often interrupted, sometimes for days. Ukraine's modest capitalist expansion was too much for the Soviet-era infrastructure to handle and is straining it to the max. I have a very difficult time calling to Ukraine, and when I succeed in getting through, the connection is usually very poor. Many newer apartments and hotels have their own water pumps and back-up generators for service outages. The more prestigious hotels in Odessa have these, (Londonskaya, Mozart, Kempinsky, etc.) and some apartments for tourists to let. If you rent an apartment, try to find out if they have their own back-ups in case the power or water are interrupted. Some times it may be days before they are back on-line.

When visiting Odesa, you...

When visiting Odesa, you absolutely must visit Humorina. This is a festival held every year on April 1st. Believe me, it's A LOT OF FUN!!!!! I miss the beautiful Prymorsky Boulevard and the suroundings of Odesa seaport the most!

A lioness statue in downtown...

by viki

A lioness statue in downtown Odessa next to Deribasovskaya Street. Deribasovskaya Street is one of the most well-known streets in Odessa. It was named after the Frenchman De Ribas who helped to conquer the Odessa region from the Turks in 1789.

At the Golden Shore

by hunterV

Having a happy family vacation in Odessa and bathing in the Black Sea at Golden Shore beach near Cape Big Fountain.
It was unforgettable experience, especially for our daughter who enjoys swimming.
We also went downtown to visit the main sites in Odessa and to “Privoz” market that is a must for every visitor of Odessa, too.
“Privoz” market is located next to the railway station.

Primorsky Boulevard

At the end of the north, it begins with the ruins of the palace of summer of the Count Woronzow. Woronzow was of 1823 until 1844 governor of Russia of the South and also had in other places, for example in Crimea, of beautiful palaces.
