Passage must have been so grand in its day as a wonderful arcade with high glass roof - and would have been 'the' place to be seen. But it is currently a little down at heal - the shops are of interest for tourists (souvenirs, handicrafts, etc).
Please, Odessa - bring it back to its former glory!!

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.

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.

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

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.
