“Small, but worth a quick peek.”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

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.

“Beautiful galleria needs TLC”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

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 walk into it the grander it becomes. As you turn left, be sure to notice the two dramatic entrances directly across from each other that are lavishly adorned with sculptures.

“Lovely small Galleria”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

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

“Cute hidden gem of architecture”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

Ok, so Passage is not for everyone. It is a shopping covered cut through to Derebasovskaya from Preobrazhenskaya ulitsa. But while the stores are mainly "keech" the architecture of the Passage is pretty special. And it is a good place to "hide" from the busier streets or the rain.

“A neat little spot”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

An unexpected, but lovely arcade, particularly lovely with the sun shining through the glass roof. It just cries out for some trendy shops, or perhaps a cafe or two. With the lovely architecture, it was a little jarring to see a couple of posters in windows promoting some kind of establishment having to do with scantily clad women upstairs. With a little development this could be something special!
