This year in April panoproject° team visited a beautiful city of Odessa. We were there only for two days, but we saw a lot of places.
— What to visit —
As soon as you come to Odessa – you can immediately go to Deribasovskaya. This is the most famous street in the city. Here you can find a monument to Ilf and Petrov “12th chair” and walk through the City Garden. From here it is not far from Odessa Opera and Ballet Theater. In our opinion, it is the most beautiful building of the city 🙂
After a little rest in a picturesque park near the fountain, walk past the City Hall. After passing through new Istanbul Park, head towards the Potemkin Stairs and Odessa Cable Car. Going down the steps, you can get to the Seaport Station. From its furthest point you can see a famous lighthouse and a harbor.
If you are not tired yet, you can walk along the shore to Shevchenko park. Enjoying the freshness of the trees, go down to the most famous beach of the city — Langeron. In winter and spring, this is a great place for photos, and in summer — for relax as well. Check it yourself 🙂
Also, there are many museums, monuments (for example, the Orange monument) and palaces in Odessa. Be sure to include them in your route if you have enough time:)
— Where to eat —
We got the impression that Odessa is ahead of all other cities in Ukraine in terms of the number of different catering establishments. If you prefer to eat in a familiar place, then it can be done right on Deribasovskaya street. Here you can find McDonald’s, “Puzata Huta” and “SushiYa”. Also, you can find many local cafes with street tables on Deribasovskaya, such as “Kompot”, “Brothers Grill” and others 🙂
In addition, the city has many stylish coffee shops. We recommend the “White Whale” for their delicious cappuccino and an interesting interior. But we do not suggest visiting “Silence Espresso Bar” – unreasonably high prices and arrogant staff.
— How to get here —
You can get to Odessa from all major cities by train. In the city itself, if you are without a car, you will have to settle for buses and walking, as we did. However, you can take a taxi, but it can cost you a pretty penny. In general, the city’s transport system leaves much to be desired, as well as the driving habits of local drivers 🙂
— Odessa through our eyes —
We shot a small video within two days we were in Odessa that conveys our impressions about this city. Enjoy! 🙂
— Summary —
In general, we liked the city and we don’t mind going back there again! We hope now you will also want to visit so colorful and diverse Odessa 🙂
And finally a small sunrise-sunset timelapse from Zatoka which is near Odessa.
