“An afternoon in Odessa”
Reviewed 13 September 2011

An summer afternoon wandering through the old city is not complete without visiting the port - A mexican sailing ship was in the harbour and we were allowed on board to have a look around.

“Nice to see and walk around”
Reviewed 3 December 2010

The port of Odessa in the Black Sea has a lot of historic things to tell you.
If you have seen the film of Eisenstein "The Battleship Potemkin", the Potemkin sailor monument is a must to be seen. Pay attention that it has been recently relocated in Yekaterininskaya street.
Another monument related to the film of Eisenstain is Potemkin Stairs which is located just in front of the Port and so you cannot missing it.
The area of the port is quite big and impressive and in the vicinity there are a lot of museums and other attractions to see.
The opera is not far from the port and it is a suggested visit too.
Along the port, especially during good weather, you will se a lot of tourists and locals walking there.

“Do not under any circumstances ship a vehicle through Odessa”
Reviewed 14 August 2008

Unfortunately I did not listen to my friend. I wanted to ship a car to Moldova. Odessa seemed to be the closest port. I was advised NOT to ship through Odessa, that I should ship it to Germany and then drive it or have it shipped to Moldova by truck. I wish I had listened. Three weeks after arrival at the port in Odessa the car is still in the container, the customs broker refuses to provide proper paperwork and tells me I will have to pay $51,000 cash deposit to Ukranian customs until the vehicle is in Moldova. Plus they have hit me with nearly $2000 in storage fees on the car. Never Never Never ship anything into Odessa.
