Odessa City Walk. Part 4. The City Churches and Hidden Gems
Odessa City Walk. Part 4. The City Churches and Hidden Gems
Mon, 6 Dec 10:00 AM - Ukraine
Odessa is definitely not a “city of Russian Orthodox churches”. Being a big melting pot since its founding, the city welcomed people of different confessions. Still today, it boasts beautiful Catholic and Russian Orthodox Cathedrals, a Protestant Presbyterian, Greek Orthodox and Lutheran churches, as well as several synagogues. We’ll start this live-stream tour at the main Catholic Cathedral and finish at the Russian Orthodox church. While strolling along the streets of the old town, we’ll follow in the footsteps of Odessa’s Greeks and uncover the story of the Greek liberation movement. We’ll talk about the city’s music heritage and visit the backyard where one of the 20th century most prominent violin players David Oistrakh grew up. We’ll walk by a Protestant Presbyterian church and talk about Odessa’s French community. And finally, one of the oldest city squares will share an exciting story of its survival of the Soviet period. Join me to explore Odessa’s fascinating history and beautiful old town. Sights included into the live-stream tour: • Catholic Cathedral (exterior) • Russian Orthodox Cathedral (exterior) • Protestant Presbyterian church (exterior) • City Garden and the monument to Odessa’s Time • Greek square and the Feliki Eteria headquarters • Cathedral square with the Vorontsov monument
