“Interesting”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

A statue at the top of the Potemkin stairs dedicated to one of the governors of Odessa. He was very popular with the people. It was under his governance that the city became a major trade port.

“Up Potemkin stairs.”
Reviewed 27 January 2014

Duke of Richelieu is not the most famous of the history, but it lived in time of Odessa, and he was Governor for one period. Architecture of ancient part of Odessa was designed by Italians and French, and the central part of the city is so different from other cities of Ukraina. The statue of Governor Richelieu is over Potemkin stairs, in one beautiful place to walk, to seat down, to see the sea(area of the port), and neat there is the most famous Londonskaya Hotel, where arrived important people of History, Literature and Politics.

“A must see in Odessa”
Reviewed 17 November 2013

This is the most famous monument in Odessa. If you are walking around ask one of the locals to point you to a famous manhole near the monument.

“Nice central spot”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

Great starting point for a walking tour of Odessa, found at the top of the Potemkin steps. Watch for tourist trappers...the day we were there they had guys with eagles selling photo ops.

“Beware the locals trying to sell you stuff”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

I was forced to pay much too much for photos with eagles. Negotiate price FIRST! But they put the eagles on me right away as I was approaching them. Well, if it went for the golden eagles' welfare, then I'm alright with that.
