  • Leaving behind a favorite port, Regal Catherine and talented Duke de Richelieu, get on deribasovskaya Street-Central and main pedestrian street of the city, named in honor of the Spanish count Jose de Ribas, later the first mayor who has imagined the Russian name Joseph Mikhailovich Deribas. Here we find ourselves quite another Odessa, more festive, modern and young. Deribasovskaya Street, known to the whole world, through books, films and songs, enchants from the first minute. The evening air is bottled scent beckoning mulled wine with tiny, but pretty fair, so amazingly similar to the cozy Christmas corners of ancient European towns. For a moment it might seem that you are somewhere in Berlin or Cologne. Someone sees in this street evening Italy or even St. Petersburg's Nevsky Prospekt. Yes ... The similarity with Peter here feels very, very strongly. And here is Mark Twain saw in Odessa at all streets of America. "By kind of Odessa exactly American City: a beautiful wide streets, straight, low houses, along the sidewalks of our white Acacia, business hustle on the streets and in the shops ...," he wrote in his travel notes "Who are abroad". Deribasovskaya Street has its own unique color, romanticism and atmosphere. Despite its compactness, it surprisingly, harmoniously combines modern boutiques and shopping centres, office buildings, restaurants and lounges and numerous attractions.
