Set above and overlooking the harbour, at first Odessa seems a stretch of terraces carved into the hills out of another time. Founded in 1240 under Ottoman rule, the city did not receive the name Odessa until it fell under Russian control in 1794, when Catherine the Great sought to rejuvenate its spirit by sending out invitations to notable figures abroad to make their home in Odessa. Lying north of the Dniester River and in the centre of the Ukraine Oblast in southern Ukraine, Odessa fairly commands the coast of the Black Sea with its two ports of Odessa and Yuzhny. With a population of just over 1 million, it is today the fourth largest city in Ukraine. airBaltic is your airline for cheap flights to Odessa International Airport, located a mere 7 km from the city centre and a stopping point for many international airlines.
Vitayu! (Hello!) The official language of Ukraine is of course Ukrainian, yet travellers are bound to hear much more Russian, due to the history of the city. Odessa is also quite an international city, meaning you are likely to hear Romanian, German, Turkish and Greek here and there while on your city-break. The younger generation does have knowledge of English, although it is not widespread and travel preparation should include learning a few basics in Russian.
