Potemkin Steps, Odessa

(3.1/5 based on 700 reviews on the web)
Odessa's best-known city landmark and symbol, Potemkin Steps also served as the site for a famous early film scene. The 1925 film "Battleship Potemkin" used the steps as the stage for a fictionalized massacre of civilians by Tsarist forces and a naval mutiny on a ship of the same name. You can walk the steps yourself along the seaward-facing entrance to town and see the optical illusion that makes it appear as a continuous staircase or a continuous landing from the bottom and top, respectively. Bring your camera; from the top of the stairs you can get a sweeping view over the bay and harbor. To visit Potemkin Steps and get the most from your holiday in Odessa, create itinerary details personal to you using our Odessa itinerary planner.

  • This is a review for warning, the Potemkin steps are closed for renovation at the moment so if you want to see them make sure they have finished the renovation  more »
  • The main steps of the Ukraine. Enjoyed its scale and grandeur. This is not just a step to the port, but the real relic odesitov, where each stpen'ka has its own history.

  • I was on the stairs before her closing, in the summer of 2016. This is a real landmark in Odessa, which everyone knows. Say unequivocally that if it really will open 17 May-I would really like to visit her again.
