Odessa port is the city's heart and may be overlooked from number of sports - Shevchenko park, Primorsky boulevard, Mother-on-laws bridge, and obviously, from the Passenger terminal down the Potemkin stairs It big, live and offers feelings of the distandt seas and islands to the city's menu Access to the territory except of the passenger facility is restricted

you can lean on the railings and moodily stare at the cranes and gantrys and the oily black water. You can listen to the clanking of chains and the sound of coal being poured into ships' holds. You can hear the shouting and whistles of harbourmasters. You can watch rusty tubs with Cyrillic names getting up steam alongside the quays.... More

Odessa passenger terminal is located some 10-15 minutes walking passing the most beautiful historic places. You have a chance to climb 192 steps of Potemkin Stairs known worldwide from the famous movie. For your comfort you may take an elevator (funiculaire). Reaching the top you can enjoy a dramatic view of the Odessa Bay. The best restaurants, cafes, boutiques are... More

Odessa, is a normal city to visit with no so many sightseeing places or touristics places to go, but whats good about odessa is that you can walk across the coast line and watch so many beautiful places to take good pictures, visit odessa shouldnt take more than 3 days

The port itself is ordinary, with no special attractions. Definitely worth to buy a one hour boat trip along the coast. (7-8 $/person)

Our cruise ship was the first in since the troubles began. We berthed very near the Potemkin stairs. There were a lot of locals out to welcome us in. We visited the art gallery in the city. Usually I'm not a great fan of Art galleries but the Museam of Fine Arts is well worth a visit. We also went... More

Took a boat ride around the bay. It was nice, very peaceful. They took us down along the coast to the Dolpinarium and back. If you are looking for some alone time with your spouse or significant other, this is perfect.

It is a huge place where you can see the famous port in its beauty but i don't advise you to go when the temperature is high in the summer, there are not that many places where you can hide from the sun and if you have buy some water before going there. If you have patience you may see... More
