Secrets and Splendors of Odessa’s Main Sights

Get a feel for Odessa’s rich cultural heritage and explore Odessa’s main sights as well as less touristy areas. We’ll walk though Odessa’s historic quarters, where main city landmarks are – the magnificent Opera House and beautiful Primorsky boulevard, city’s iconic sight – the Potemkin Steps, the Vorontsov and Tolstoy palaces, Deribasovskaya street and many more. We’ll put faces and events to the landmarks and share with you little known stories.

The tour goes through old neighborhoods of Odessa’s historic city center. Their concealed streets, courtyards and over 200-year-old gardens are keyholes into Odessa’s past, harboring everything from traces of the city legends to a forgotten well, the only source of so precious back then drinking water in that area. It’s old, vintage Odessa, full of character and off the beaten track passageways that take you into the time of Odessa’s golden age.

You may rightfully say that you can see it all by yourself… We’ll dare argue with that – each sight in Odessa, even the most known one, has a little bit of secret history, which we’ll crack during this walk. And we’ll share with you exciting stories hidden behind a splendid architectural façade of Odessa sights. And to hear the stories is to experience the city.

This is the “must do” walk, miss it and you’ve missed Odessa!


“We visited Odessa in mid September 2015, and were pleased to engage Olga for all three of the tours she offers — ‘basic’ Odessa, the Jewish tour, and the Catacombs. All three were outstanding…”
