This monument commemorates that founder of Odessa. It is a very beautiful statue and is within a short walk of the Potemkin Stairs, the statue of Duke de Richelieu and the Odessa Opera House.

This is located in a great place to meet with someone unfamiliar with Odessa. Every local and cab driver can get you there. Very Powerful woman when she lived
