Located on the Black Sea, Odessa, the third largest city in Ukraine, will charm you with its traditions, monuments and natural treasures. You will stroll around its historic centre where you’ll find historic sites and important museums on every turn of the street. Its buildings, along its wide shaded boulevards, give a good idea of its former grandeur. Near the sea, you will appreciate climbing the 192 steps of the Potemkin Stairs, considered as the formal entrance to Odessa. This genuine symbol of the city was made famous by Sergei Eisenstein’s film BattleshipPotemkin (1925).
