About the tour

Part 1 of Secrets and Splendors of Odessa's Main Sights live-stream walking tour is an entertaining way to discover the city. We’ll stroll around the historic quarters in real-time and uncover the secrets of Odessa’s landmarks during an interactive quiz. From the comfort of your home, you’ll virtually walk up the 192 steps of the legendary Potemkin staircase and marvel at stunning Catherine square. We’ll drop into Odessa’s courtyards to glimpse at the local lifestyle. The city’s past is a cocktail of funny stories cast in stone and we take it all in: how Odessa’s iconic sight appeared and why it was called the Potemkin Steps, why the statue to the French prime minister was erected on the donations of the Odessa’s poor and rich and has become a symbol of Odessa; the city’s beating heart of all times – Primorsky boulevard and its secrets. You’ll engage with a professional tour guide who is an Odessa local. She’ll share with you insights into the city’s life and explain what makes Odessa so special. This live-stream walking tour is an exciting and informative way to experience beautiful Odessa. To be continued. There’s also Part 2... of course, with an interactive quiz!
