Vidrada – is slightly farther from the city centre than Lanzheron. It is the closest to the centre among the beaches located under the French Parkway (boulevard). Vidrada is easily reachable by tram #5, 3 stops from the railway station and 5 stops from the intersection with Preobrazhenska Street, which is the major transportation artery of the city centre.
Overall, however, we had an excellent experience in the restaurant and the space in the bar was lovely. We never felt rushed during the meal and one waitress was very helpful with the wine, allowing me to taste a couple of different ones. We will be back and I would definitely recommend! See More

Mini-buses called “marshrutka” in Ukrainian language and are the main source of transportation in the city, as they cover a lot more ground than the system of public transportation. They are all private and nowadays most of them cost 5.00 UAH (0.15 EUR, Jan 2018), you pay the money to the driver when you exit the the minibus. There is also no schedule for minibuses and they also do not stop only on the marked stops. Basically, you can ask to stop a minibus anywhere, provided it is not illegal to stop in that area, by waving your hand in front of the driver. You can also exit by saying where you need for the minibus to stop. Thus it requires some knowledge of Ukrainian. Other passengers will usually help you. You may try to find the suitable minibus, tram or trolley on the  (also available in English). If you know the name of your street in Cyrillic and can use Google Translate, you may just manage that. Google maps is also a good option for routes search.

The ceety became the hame o a lairge Jewish community durin the 19t century, an bi 1897 Jews wur estimatit tae comprise some 37% o the population.

Mony Odessan Jews fled abroad, parteecularly tae Palestine efter 1882, an the ceety became an important base o support for Zionism.
My daughter loves OCS. There are all kinds of fun activities, and she loves the positive learning environment. The staff is great, and they are always trying to enrich the curriculum for the students. This year they came out with a house system that has been proven to motivate students to achieve excellence. I would not consider sending my child anywhere else!

It was my first time to get a lawyer, I was completely lost and I thought nobody could help me, a nightmare but, they were great!!! Outstanding!!! They kept me updated and they explain everything clear till the end. I highly recommend them!!!read more
The white chosen for dinner was a Spanish Verdejo and was excellent. I wasn’t planning on drinking any wine, but there was no alternative options for alcohol offered down in the restaurant. I did try to seek an alternative, but staff were flying around so I gave up.

Odessa Christian School is the result of a God-given vision to provide to students a strong academic education through a Biblical world view, and to instill in our students a heart for serving others and proclaiming the love of Christ to all.
As I was a guest of my company here, I have no idea how much all this cost, so cannot comment on the value. But everything else on the whole was excellent from Odessa. If you are looking for somewhere to have a company night out, you couldn’t go far wrong here.
Beware of filthy conditions and bedbugs in some of the homestay budget accommodation in Odesa. If you enter by train you will be immediately approached by one of the many locals in an attempt to get you to rent a room from them. This may end up being a small not so well constructed (but basically clean) one room structure located in their garden. It may also not come with a shower with running water, instead consisting of a small outdoor cabinet with a tank located above it that your host will fill with hot water upon request. Additionally the local accommodation will most likely have a squat toilet. For those uncomfortable with using a squat toilet the facilities at the McDonald’s near the train station make for a good substitute. Note that nobody speaks English or German (even the most basic talk). This makes the negotiations very difficult! In July/August most budget hotels are fully booked. The total price for your garden residency will usually not exceed 10 USD and in the summer it is more than sufficient. The hostels in the city can be booked online or try your luck and just drop in.
