  • Good place in the center of the city to have some relax. Not very large but pretty cosy place.
  • Nice place to walk through, in summer time. Beautiful flowers.
  • Lovely green space in lively part of the city. Can frequently hear live music here.
  • A small square in the very center of the city on the most famous Odessa tourist street - Deribasovskaya. 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.
  • Great & clean place in the center of Odessa. Bring your kids here and enjoy views. Don't shop or stop to eat anywhere around here as prices are doubled.
