Scammer Ruin it all
Sep 2021 • Couples
SCAM ALERT! 🚨⚠️ Sep 19, 2021
First time visiting Odessa with my husband we were enjoying our visit until our experience was ruined by aggressive ‘pigeon’ scammers in Mis’skyy park. We entered the park from the Derybasivska street and almost immediately were confronted by a young woman with exotic pigeon who insisted we pet her pigeon and take pictures. After we declined her offer she briefly followed us with offers to take pictures with her pigeon and my husband eventually asked the price and this woman said 100 UAH, we agreed to take pictures for 100 UAH. While one of the women was taking our pictures, her assistant came with more pigeons and placed several more pigeons on our arms and shoulders. It took about one minute and after they took pictures both women walked up very close to my husband and demanded 600 UAH! When my husband asked why they changed the price from 100 to 600, one of the women shouted that it is 100 per pigeon! This was a total lie and we knew that we were being scammed. This being our first time dealing with scammers in Odessa we were intimidated into paying up 600 UAH.

Rob-bed

The good thing here is there are no homeless bedding in the benches. Bad thing, the robbery style fleecing in garden cafe could we'll make anyone homeless.

Ukraine People Are Untrustworthy
Aug 2020
We had a regrettable situation at this restaurant, because the staff were trying to steal money from us. We are a couple with a young baby, that was enjoying being out in the open, but when the bill came, the waiter tried to con us and make us pay an extra 236 UAH. Unfortunately this happens a lot in ukraine, and people here are very untrustworthy. We complained and asked to speak to the manager. She did not look at all surprised by this problem, and offered nothing in compensation. She had the face of bull-dog chewing a wasp. It was not pleasant, and I wouldn't recommend coming here due to the high amount of dishonest people (this can be applied to both the restaurant and the country).

It Sort Of Has Everything
Dec 2019 • Solo
It's got the cobbled street up to it, it has a band stand (where musicians actually play), and then there's treats for you if you look East, West, North or South. Now that's what I call a garden!

See, sit and be seen
Oct 2019
This small park is right next to the pedestrian area that is the heart of Odessa's night life. It has a band stand, flowers and grass, and comfortable benches to sit and watch people, their dogs and the Odessa cats. Sculptures range from tradtional lions to an empty chair, and what looks like the inventor of the paper plane. Visiting at any time is pleasant but nights and weekends add the lights!

Plain place to relax with some events from time to time
Oct 2018
A small square in the very center of the city on the most famous Odessa tourist street - De Ribas. The square is surrounded by several restaurants. Inside there are many benches for relaxation, a fountain, which is illuminated in the evenings, and a gazebo, in which time to time can be seen some cultural performances.

Beautiful garden
Sep 2019 • Solo
City garden is a wonderful place located alongside Deribasovskaya street and full of restaurants, cafes, bars and other fun places. Closer to the evening you can enjoy musicians playing different instruments and all sorts of street artists. It has beautiful trees and plenty of benches to sit and enjoy the view.

Very lively little park

This little park is in the city centre and very lively. Music is often played and then you see babouchka's and older men dancing individually or together.
