About the city
Odessa is the third most populous city in Ukraine, and the area of the Odessa region is 33 314 km2, which by comparison is larger than the area of such countries as Belgium, Montenegro and Cyprus. And even the largest lake of Ukraine Yalpug - is also located here.
But, it is worth to visit Odessa not only for the lake. This city can surprise even the most sophisticated tourist.

- The only monument to Darth Vader in the world, which unexpectedly appeared during the decommissioning and became another of Odesa's landmarks.
- The Potemkin Stairs are one of the city's visiting cards. When you stand at the top and look down, the staircase seems to be the same width throughout. In terms of the rules of perspective - this is impossible, but the architects purposely made the bottom of the stairs significantly wider than the top to create this illusion, as well as to give the stairs more pomp and grandeur.
- Flat houses - which create the illusion that the building has only one wall.
- Don't forget to visit the Odessa Archaeological Museum, which contains the zlatnik of Prince Vladimir, the first gold coin of Kievan Rus, minted in the late 10th early 11th century. There are only 11 of them left in the world. And only two in Ukraine.
