Scenic Lookout
“The stairs are considered a formal entrance into the city from the direction of the sea and are the best known symbol of Odessa. The top step is 12.5 meters (41 feet) wide, and the lowest step is 21.7 meters (70.8 feet) wide. The staircase extends for 142 meters, but it gives the illusion of greater length. The stairs were so precisely constructed as to create an optical illusion. A person looking down the stairs sees only the landings, and the steps are invisible, but a person looking up sees only steps, and the landings are invisible. The steps were made famous in Sergei Eisenstein's 1925 silent film Battleship Potemkin On the left side of the stairs, a funicular railway was built in 1906 to transport people up and down instead of walking. At the top of the stairs is the Duke de Richelieu Monument, depicting Odessa's first Mayor.”

Hotel
“Одной из главных достопримечательностей Одессы является культурно-оздоровительный комплекс «Немо», который состоит из отеля, ресторанов, пляжного комплекса, океанариума, центра дельфинотерапии и, конечно же, дельфинария. «Немо» удивляет современной архитектурой, великолепной набережной с площадью фонтанов, а также лучшей в Европе шоу-программой с участием дельфинов семейства Афалин, южноамериканских морских котиков и львов. В «Немо» можно не только посетить шоу с дельфинами, но и поплавать вместе с ними, погрузиться на дно бассейна с опытным инструктором по дайвингу и даже пройти курс дельфинотерапии. ”

Shopping Mall
“Большой торговый центр, в подвале супермаркет и большая приличная столовая с большим разнообразием блюд. Одно из самых дешевых и более-менее приличных мест чтобы перекусить. Практически любое блюдо можно забрать с собой как кулинарию. Оригинальный постмодернистский интерьер кафе с картинами в стиле соцарта и "веницианскими" зеркалами. ”
