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

Inner courtyard of the Passage hotel, lined with shops and covered with glazing. If restored and filled with restaurants could be great place Now more an attraction for photografers and artists On the corner of Derybasivska and Preobrazhenska

The archtecture of the Passage is pretty and there are many shops here. These are craft and a couple of souvenir shops. It is not signposted well off Deribasovskya Street and it is possible to miss. Nice to see but not desperately needed for an Odessa itinerary.

In its heyday it would have been the place to shop and be seen. Now the shops are mainly handicraft and looking rather tired. However the exterior makes up for it. It could be come a popular arcade with a clean up and better shops.

An interesting place to pop into if passing. But shops were a lot less interesting than the building.

When going along Deribasovskaya, don't forget to turn left right after you pass the city garden, the galleria is there. I made some pics of it, so you may imagine how beautiful this place is.
