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.

Passage must have been so grand in its day as a wonderful arcade with high glass roof - and would have been 'the' place to be seen. But it is currently a little down at heal - the shops are of interest for tourists (souvenirs, handicrafts, etc). Please, Odessa - bring it back to its former glory!!

It is located inside a non-descript two-tone building. Not as impressive as the galleries throughout London, Milan or even Naples but one can imagine that this was once very grand. Now it is just filled with souvenir shops, a ceramics shop and a small appliance store. Restrooms (for a fee) are located in the underground crosswalk near the passage/gallery.

Across the street from the Preobrazhenskiy Orthodox Cathedral, another beautiful example of the architecture of Odessa that needs restoration. Great all weather attraction due to its glass ceilings, this place is an L shaped space. When entering from the cathedral side through the most ornate opening on the block, it doesn't look like much at first, but the farther you... More

We really liked this passage, especially as later in Turkey we ran into the man whose Grandmother once owned it!
