Flights to Odessa

Odessa – gem of the Black Sea and crossroads of different cultures

Probably every Estonian knows the city on the Black Sea called Odessa. Ukraine’s most important resort town is the stuff of nostalgic memories of yesteryear and old Soviet-era films. Odessa is still one of the most important and famous holiday spots for all nationalities. Its lovely architecture, the Black Sea coast, guaranteed flavours and colourful line-up of activities make Odessa one of the most visited destinations in the region.

Kids & families

Odessa is a great place to visit with kids of any age. Museums, water parks and attractions by the sea, the zoo combine to make Odessa a place that younger family members long to return to.

Aquatic centres

There are two main water parks in Odessa. Havaii is right in the middle of the city with various slides, pools and attractions. Odessa water park is seven kilometres outside the city centre and has five different pools, 11 slides and a Pirates’ Island theme area for kids. Both parks have various food options, but queues may be long in peak seasons – but bring a little patience and keep calm and a great day at the park is guaranteed.

NORDICA RECOMMENDS:
Rent a car and take a drive out of town to Odessa Water Park. You’ll see a bit of the Ukrainian countryside and this park may have fewer crowds and shorter queues.

Culture and architecture

Odessa Opera and Ballet Theatre

A Baroque style building with splendid architecture, the theatre is a must-see for any opera and ballet fan. The world-class programme is carefully selected and the playbill includes productions such as La Traviata, Aida, Madame Butterfly and Giselle. Magnificent stage design and breathtakingly beautiful costumes make each performance and concert here sui generis.

NORDICA RECOMMENDS:
If there are no performances on the day of your preference, or tickets are sold out, you might want to book a tour instead, so at least you can see Ukraine’s most impressive and frequently visited building.
PS! There’s a dress code to get in – visitors in street clothes won’t be allowed in.

The Pushkin Museum

The museum is located in an apartment where the famous writer spent 13 months of his life. In this small but charming museum, visitors can see original manuscripts, photographs, drawings and personal items that give a sense of this period in the life of the famous artist after he was exiled from Russia.

Food, drink and nightlife

Kotelok

Kotelok Restaurant is a favourite destination for all seafood lovers. The menu includes all delicacies the Black Sea has to offer. Caviar, shellfish, snails and fish are prepared with care using longstanding traditions because Odessa’s culinary culture is a rich one.

Tulka

If you’re looking for a combination of the rich tastes of Ukraine, we recommend a beautiful evening at Tulka Restaurant, which offers discoveries and surprises, too. Book a table and go on a true voyage of the flavours of the country.

Shopping

The market

For an unforgettable experience, visit one of the most important and biggest marketplaces in Ukraine, called Privoz (Привоз). Seafood right from the Black Sea, and fresh produce seem to be set pieces from a theatre until you realize they’re real – and the affordable prices make it a practical place to shop, too.

Transport

To get around the city, we recommend trolleybuses and trams. The ticket prices are affordable and tickets can be purchased directly from the driver and for cash.

NORDICA RECOMMENDS:
Trams are convenient for getting around the city. To take a drive out of town, we recommend renting a car, as this way you can enjoy the countryside and visit a water park outside town as well.
