Odessa. Pop. 1,029,000. Currency - Hryvnia (UAH). Language – Ukrainian (Russian is spoken widely in Odessa) Time Zone GMT + 2 hours. Main airport – Odessa International Airport ODS. Best Time to go – May and September are popular months, with blossoms in May and cooler temperatures in September. Odessa is the 4th largest city in Ukraine and is a major port located on the Black Sea. The city traces its origins back to a small Tatar settlement, was founded by Hac I Giray, the Khan of Crimea, in 1240. During the Soviet control it was a strategically important trading port and a naval base, although the military significance of the port has diminished over recent decades. The city architecture has a distinctive Mediterranean look having been heavily influenced by French and Italian styles. Some of the buildings are built in a mixture of different styles, including Art Nouveau, Renaissance and Classicist. For visitors the best site is to walk through the ‘Old Town’ taking in the magnificent opera house and a stroll down the famous Potemkin Stairs/Steps –arguably the most iconic symbol of the city. The steps were made famous in Sergei Eisenstein's 1925 silent film The Battleship Potemkin; according to the fictionalized account in that film, soldiers opened fire on the people on the stairs on June 14, 1905. Alongside the old town the other major attraction for visitors are the Odessa beaches – the most popular one being Arcadia which has restaurants, bars, discos, night clubs and other entertainment. A member of TLD staff visited the city in October 2005, and can recommend a walk down the Potemkin Stairs, followed by caviar washed down with a glass of vodka in a frosted glass.
