Lots of shops and an interesting place to visit. Different from other places I saw in Odessa. A little difficult to find.

It's essentially a shopping passage, but the choice of shops there is lame, so don't waste time on it. But the architecture is so nice, definitely worth passing by to see it.

Nice architecture, random shops and 5minutes is more than enough time to see it all. I would not go out your way to see, as you would be disappointed.

Lovely pictures and interesting architecture but higher price and that could be seen in The various crafts and embroidered clothing and other items from the Ukrainian culture. Now in comparison to prices in America they may be slightly more reasonable but you are paying for their location and rent. We very much enjoyed going inside and taking pictures of the... More

You don't go to Passage for the shopping experience, that would be more than naive. Forget about the shops: the building is worth a visit in itself, with so many details, statues and colours. Like most of these beautiful buildings in Odessa's centre, this building is also in a perfect condition. I actually walked down the corridors several times, it... More

Kinda nice but filled up with the oh-so typical shops for tourists, quite naturally. After taking a few pictures, I was "done" under 10 minutes.

That's not an monument or nothing of historical importance. That's just a simple old times built shopping mall that still does have some shops that has two openings at two perpendicular roads at a busy center. Worth seeing it just for a couple of minutes.

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.

from one side nothong special - just passage that is transformed into shopping gallery. But whtn you enter inside it looks like small copy or sister of Milano Galeria and other gallaries. Impressive!
