Cities and Services

  is traditionally regarded as a southern seaside city, with warm climate of warm summers and mild winters, but it can be really chilly there in winter, especially if the sea breeze comes to the shore along with humid weather. Many Ukrainians prefer visiting the city in spring/summer time, but during the tourist season Odessa is badly overcrowded. Traditionally, it was regarded as a charming marine city of rich history and multinational population, where more than 80% were merchants, selllers and just proprietors. Recently, it started to loose it's romantic charm and has turned into a large port, transportation knot and a trade center for all southern areas of Ukraine.

Pictures of Odessa

Through decades, Odessa has become a famous place of relaxation and rest to those who like nightlife places. Both, local business people and foreign gests find Odessa's night clubs, casinos, bowling places and entertainment clubs very attractive. If you are planning to sleep late hours in the morning and then spend evening in a nice club being surrounded with local people (who are very communicative), then Odessa is a good city for you. But to those who are interested in historical sightseeing and museums, I would rather recommend visiting Kiev or cities of the Western Ukraine.

If you are interested in cultural program, there are a number of options to be checked out-
- City touring around most beautiful places in Odessa and checking out architectural masterpieces of European masters
