About the tour

Every summer Odessa hosts an International Film Festival and the Potemkin Steps becomes the festival’s largest open-air film venue. On this one-time live stream tour we’ll see how locals sit on the staircase and watch Chaplin’s black and white film ‘The Kid”. We’ll stroll the streets of the old town and soak in the summer ambiance of Odessa’s historic quarter after dark. Odessa at night becomes a vibrant city with beautifully illuminated heritage buildings and side walks full of street performers. Fancy seeing the city’s iconic sight – the National Opera and Ballet Theater after the darkness hits? Interested in taking a stroll along beautifully lit Primorsky boulevard, which becomes a place of an “evening promenade” for lots of city guests? We’ll walk along the broad cobbled streets of the old town soaking in the city at night and talking about the famous names connected to Odessa. This is a one-time event! Not to miss if you are curious to see Odessa by night and Chaplin’s The Kid on the Potemkin Steps.

Meet OlgaOdessaWalks


Olga's journey to guiding and establishing Odessa Walks started in 1998 when she left her home country and went to California to attend a business school. What made her move across the ocean back then? First off, interest to see the world and desire to explore her career options. And while studies were certainly important, traveling was her real passion. After obtaining an MBA degree she has worked in California, London and Moscow. Finally, in 2011 she made a decision to return to Odessa, her anchor city. Why? To build something of her own, based on what she loves most: meeting people, this amazing city and its rich heritage. As a result, Odessa Walks Ltd. came to live in 2011. Since then she's been managing the business and providing in-person tours. Since the fall of 2020 she's been creating online Odessa experiences.

walk too long because the film was delayed. Screen for film too small so I didn't watch it.

What a treat! A full walking tour of the old town of Odessa at night with all the street scenes and activity -- and a viewing of Chaplin's film The Kid at the Odessa Film Festival from the Potemkin Steps. Fantastic! Thanks, Olga!
