Odessa

Pearl of the Black Sea

Though most famous for the Potemkin Steps leading down the Black Sea coast, Odessa welcomes visitors with several other attractions, including beaches and an ornate opera house. Founded in the 18th century by Catherine the Great as a Russian naval fortress, Ukraine's fourth-largest city was the site of the historic Russian Revolution uprising by the Battleship Potemkin crew in 1905. Odessa serves as the country's biggest commercial port, though it also boasts Neo-classical architecture with plenty of character. The city gets heavily crowded with resort-goers in the summer months. Odessa is in Odessa Oblast. Plan your trip to Odessa and other Ukraine destinations using our handy Ukraine trip builder tool .
