200 years history of Odessa in some words

Odessa is the third largest city of Ukraine (after Kiev and Kharkov) located on the Black Sea coast; it is the largest seaport of the country.

The city's name comes from the ancient Greek colony of Odessos, which, according to the scientists, was located near the Gulf of Odessa. That is the name that at the end of the XVIII century was chosen by the Russian Queen Catherine the Great for conquered Hadzhibey settlement from Turks.

Well-located geographically, Odessa quickly evolved from a small settlement in the commercial, industrial and scientific center of European importance. By the 100th anniversary of its foundation (1894), Odessa occupied the 4th place in the Russian Empire in size and level of economic development after St. Petersburg, Moscow and Warsaw.

Over 200 years Odessa was built, erected, evolve d and decorated by many peoples, nations, tribes and ethnic groups. They were people of different professions, religions, life principles and beliefs. But thanks to all of them we inherited a city which combines very different styles in harmony. This mix of cultures and national colors creates a unique and original look of the city.

Despite the historical disturbance, wars and revolutions in the last century the population of Odessa has nearly tripled. Today the city continues to develop, and now it is a major industrial and resort center of Ukraine. The mild climate, plenty of sandy beaches and warm sea attract thousands of tourists to the city with a title of "Southern Palmira".

Odessa is most popular among foreign guests. Beautiful, carefree resort attracts them by its architecture and endless beaches.... and of course its feminine beauty.
