Cruise tο Odessa !

Odessa is a major port and resort on the Black Sea coast. It is an amazing and diverse city. It's like a separate country with its own way of life.

Its appearance, citizens, their own language, and their only inherent mentality makes this city truly unique.

Odessa passenger terminal is ideally located in the centre of the city close to the most important tourist sights.

Numerous landmarks, a mild climate, an abundance of entertainment, suitable connections to the airport (8km), railway station (3km) and bus station (5km) attract tourists from every corner of the world.

One of the symbols of Odessa, made famous in S. Eisenstein’s film ‘The Battleship Potemkin’ are the Potemkin Stairs. The top step is 12.5mtr wide, and the lowest step is 21.7mtr wide giving the illusion of greater length. A person looking down the stairs sees only the landings whilst a person looking up sees only steps.

The architectural style of Odessa is unique. The whole central part of the city is an architectural reserve, where the streets are the blend of Gothic and Classicism, Empire style and the Baroque, Renaissance and Art Nouveau. Odessa is a ‘world capital of humour and laughter’. It is here, nowhere else in the world on April Fools’ Day since 1973 citizens and numerous guests of the city participate in the theatrical procession in the city streets and squares, effervescent humour festival Humorina.

Odessa passenger terminal can simultaneously accommodate five vessels. The terminal includes a concert and exhibition hall, yacht marina, centre of underwater activity, Maritime Art gallery, Anchor Museum and St. Nicholas’ church.
