If you have plenty of time and wish to fill what is hardworking students of Odessa's life looks like - that's the best place to visit. There are different language sections but if you speak Russian or Ukrainian you'll read great 1-2 hundred old books...More

I work in the library for more than thirty years so I do not know how objective I am. But five millions books, wonderful building and great history deserve visiting.
