Odessa is not only Ukraine's most important sea port and Ukraine's 3rd largest city - in many ways it has more local character than any other city in the country. Founded in 1794 by Catherine the Great, Odesa became wealthy in the 19th and early 20th centuries on the grain trade, shipping, and smuggling. To this day Odesans are renowned for their sharp wit and canny trading abilities which were shaped due to the culture mix.

Within a short period of time the city, with its beautiful harbour on the Black Sea, has become Ukraine's southern window to Europe and an important cultural centre. The city is constantly hosting exhibits, symposia, and conferences. It is the site of consulates and trade missions of many countries; many cultural exchange societies are active in the city.

Every year, approximately 100,000 tourists visit Odessa attracted by its tree lined boulevards and Prymorsky Stairs, the marine railway and beautiful beaches, numerous new structures, and the unusual architecture of old Odessa

Highly Recommended
If an ordinary lifestyle is not for you, our very strong advice is for you to visit Odessa, "The Pearl of the Black Sea". This vivacious seaport frolics in the good life right around the clock. The exraordinary aura of Odessa is something not to be missed. Every one of us deep at heart has a special city, which after having visited, is like making a secret wish come true. Odessa certainly is one of them.

Climate Of Odessa
Odessa has a relatively warm continental andd comparatively dry climate with long summers and temperatures averaging 23 degrees C during the summer months. There are more than 290 sunny days in the year. Winters are short and mild with an average temperature of around freezing point

Architectural Landscape
Architectural Landscape of Odessa is unique. In Odessa, where the number of educated and well-to-do people has always been considerable since the very early years, the yearning for beauty is universal. The Russian noblemen, Greek merchants, French aristocracy, Italian, Bulgarian and German expatriates would recreate a habitual environment featuring a distant motherland. Thus, Odessa landscape is formed by sumptuous palaces in Roman style, French passages stylised as ancient trade galleries, Greek structures with terraces and inner courtyards, typical Mediterranean cofee-houses and wine-cellars, and prayer houses of practically all the world religions. All the vast central part of the city is a unique architectural reserved area where Gothic and Classicism, Empire style and Baroque, Renaissance and Art Nouveau stlye, have all intertwined most organically.

Odessans are extremely friendly people
People of nearly 100 nationalities call Odessa their home. With a kind of motherly love Odessa cherishes the names of her nationality inhabitants which is reflected in the names of her streets and squares : the streets Bessarabskaya (Bessabarian), Bolgarskaya (Bulgarian), Grecheskaya (Greek), Evreyskaya (Jewish), Polskaya (Polish), Frantsuzskiy Bvd (French). Italyanskiy Bvd (Italian). Odessans are known by their ability to find reason for a good-natured joke, not forgetting to banter over themselves in any situation. It is inherent in them to perceive life as an ongoing celebration in spite of different everyday troubles and historic catacllysms. Odessans are very hospitable folks. No matter in what language you are speaking help, you will definitely find compassion and willingness to assist you.

Odessa Beaches

Odessa's sandy beaches are a true delight for the holiday maker. The city is hemmed by a 40-km long sandy shore line. Beach holidays here are a cult, an incomparable and irreplacable enjoyment. Visitors to the beach clubs will find it more difficult to concentate on just the blue sea. Surfing and diving, restaurant services enjoyed on a beach-bed, sailing out on a yacht, jet ski rides quite often end up with a late dinner and dancing in the moonlight .
