This place is full of history. The architecture, the Opera house, the gardens next to them, all add to the old world charm and ambience to this place. In August it was pleasant, a bit crowded, but not uncomfortable. Worth visiting.

Irina and I enjoyed this part of Odessa immensely due to the fact that it felt like a French city, like Paris. The architecture was beautiful, the theatre was awesome and we felt safe and comfortable in Odessa.

Square is worth a visit as the buildings there are quite impressive. It's not far from the Poltolkin Steps
