I have been in the passage periodically since 2000. This overly ornate passageway is worth strolling through to get some idea of the grandeur of Odessa in the Tsarist era. For years, this passage just had ordinary shops with the exception of one of the only "Westernized" small supermarkets on the outdoor entrance. It maintains this clash by not really having luxury shops inside and still has a feeling for what I experienced in other Soviet Republics in the late 90s - a clash of luxury with ordinariness.

This is the place you should definitely check! But not for shopping. This is a part of city's history, has very beautiful architecture and conveniently located on Deribasovskaya street, across the Gorsad.

There are many small shops and souvenir vendors around the city center. We spent many days shopping for small, under $20, gifts for our friends and ourselves. Eventually end up buying them in the Passage. Most of products they sell is either domestic or impoted from Russia. The building is in a great location and someone will turn it into a real business one day.

Passage could be a great place for expensive shops, BUT this place captured by small shops of chinese garbage for tourists. It a nice place to see and feel the spirit of Odessa. Avoid of shopping there !
