Derybasivska Street is a pedestrian walkway in the heart of city. The street is named after José de Ribas - the builder of Odessa, the head of military and civil administration. He had also a house on this street.

Derybasovskaya St is a French style architecture street with cozy atmosphere and plenty of cafes and restaurants. It is especially beautiful in autumn with gold from maple leafs around. Very similar to Podol in Kiev but less bumpy.

Famous for its beauty and location. tourists and locals love going there because it is the center of the city. All the cafes, restaurants, and places of interest are there. You can easily go the the Odessa Opera Theatre from Deribasovskaya.

Ok, it's a fun street with lots of activity. But I'm from London so it takes a lot to make me go wow. This street is like somewhere in Covent Garden, It's ok to stroll along and I would recommend to visitors.

This is one of my favorite places in Odessa!! Lot's of shops, Great Food, Things to do and see. The street is cobblestoned and closed to cars for walking. Historical sights and traditional sounds. trees line this street and in winter its decorated for the season. Very enjoyable place filled with laughter and smiles.

Awesome street. Full of restaurant cafes and shops, parks.
A great place to spend your evenings and meet special people in your life.
Only bad thing is noise. Anyone can turn loud music anywhere and that is very disturbing.

It's nice to walk and dine there but the problem is that women are fake: they look like very beautiful angels but they only want free drinks and free food, then they run away. Or they are simply prostitutes who will ask you money always after scrounging food and beverages. I have lived in Odessa for long: this is a rule. Trust me. You must pay, even if you are CR7!!!!

It may seem there is nothing special in this street. No outstanding architecture, except for couple of really unique buildings and beautiful garden located just in the middle. Several good restaurants and cafes, boutiques, shops. There are streets, alleys and squares in Odessa which could be considered much more beautiful. Who really believe that Picadilly is the most beautiful street in London or Champs Elysees in Paris? However, these names are known all over the world.
The same with Deribasovkaya St. If you have never visited it and walked a couple of miles in it, you surely missed something that you would remember forever.
Like they say here -if you have never seen it then what you 've been doing all your life.

I usually come to Odessa in the heart of Winter (December / January), but find myself here for a week in late September -- I've always liked Deribasovskaya Street with it's pedestrianized cobbled stones leading you up the side of the city garden, but nothing prepared me for the astonishing activity at this time of year -- cafes, restaurants packed inside and out, on-street seating all the way up; flower-sellers, performers, a giant sculptured cow outside 'Steakhaus'; and of course, all topped off by the cafe / restaurant extraordinaire, Klara Bara which sits atop the city garden. I just don't know where you'd get a Karen Millen shop next to a fruit and veg stall, a bunch of Odessans waltzing to the band PLAYING IN THE BANDSTAND opposite a casino. All of life is here and with something like 150 different nationalities living in this remarkable city, little surprise that it should all kick off on Deribasovskaya Street..

It's something that I write with a smidge of hesitancy simply because I don't really want the tourist world to wake up and run riot in this incredible city. Ok ok, so this post is hardly going to change anything, but I do wonder how come Odessa has managed to shyly hide away from the glare of mass publicity.

To my eye It is undoubtedly the most elegant and vibrant city anywhere in Europe. It has a blend of many different ethnicities, which gives it the energy; Italian and French architectural influences which gives it the beauty; and access to a fabulous set of beaches to give the variety. Oh, and did I mention the Mediterranean climate? Deribasovksaya Steet? Potemkin steps anyone? The best night club in Europe? The list goes on.

Obviously there are tourists throughout Odessa but the majority appear to be domestic or Russian with the effect that there aren't the obvious tourist traps associated with other more popular destinations throughout the globe. Advertising is also thin enough in the centre so the buildings can breathe and show off. It really is a jewel.

Catherine The Great may have done some harsh and wrongheaded things in her time, but the creation of Odessa wasn't one of them! A few faves:

Atmosphere = Klara Bara
Food = Fratelli (outside, upstairs)
View + Food = Fish Café
Underground / Indy w cheap beer = Exit
Beauty = Opera House + Promorskiy Blvd
Nightclub = Ibiza
