If you like 19th century, you will like this passage. It shows clearly that Ukraine used to be part of Europe before the USSR. Most of it is painted anew, but it needs some serious restoration if they want to keep it for future generations.

The passage is a surprising gem just off the main walking street. It has several tourist shops. Its nice but not worth to make a big effort to see. But since you will probably take a walk in the main street anyway it is no extra work.

That's the place you should see. The great architecture ( such eclectic style is typical for The Old City), great history and great location( just near Deribasovskaya street,Spasso-Preobrazhensky Sobor ect) If you have possibility, take a guide or a touristic tour to learn more about its history or just read the Wikipedia. Inside the building wou will find a lot... More

At the end of derebasovskaia street, gogeous passage with old style status and shops. Pity that this passage smell too much the old style which need deep refurbishment.

This is a very beautiful building and is like a slice if Italy in Ukraine. The shops are very local and have fascinating items to window shop but not all that tempting to buy. Worth looking out, especially in bad weather.

Came here in August 2013 and was intrigued by most of the shops in here. Lots of cool items and things to purchase inside here! may seem normal if I was Ukrainian but since I'm not , I was fascinated by everything!! Although the language barrier was obvious, all the workers and locals were very friendly and hospitable!

As a Milan born Italian, I was pretty curious about this galleria when I first heard about it. From the outside it doesn't show, but the passage hides a beautiful gallery with plenty of decorations. Unfortunately shops do not live up to the quality of the building and it is a pity that this building is not a center of... More

On a previous visit to Odessa in Septmeber 2014, we had missed this attraction so on our return in December we made a point of going to see the Passage. The Architecture is fantastic and well worth the visit, it is not a particularly large building and I was expecting to compare it with Galleria Emanuele Vittorio II in Milan,... More
