Port Description

Odessa, Ukraine

The statue of Duke De Richelieu, city founder, hangs out in Odessa's popular Boulevard. According to legend, if you are lonely, just visit the statue and if your friends don't soon follow, new friends will arrive in your life. Terraced hills overlook the harbor, and the 193 steps of Potemkinskaya will lay to shame any onboard StairMaster. Being the Black Sea's largest port, influences from the nearby Med have left their mark on the town's architecture, and the beautiful Odessa Opera House ranks up with Europe's best.
