Hotel Bristol’s concierge team recommends the Odessa Opera Night
When you’re travelling to Odessa, one of your main visits should be dedicated to the Odessa Opera Night. This is one of the most impressive and beautiful opera houses on the globe and the greatest architectural attraction in Ukraine. The productions it hosts are only the best classic operas or ballets in the country.
The building was designed in 1887 by the famous Viennese architects Helmer and Fellner. The inside horseshoe-shaped room where the shows take place has the unique ability of conveying even the fadest whisper from the stage to every corner.
Besides the spectacular Opera house, Odessa has numerous other special and memorable attractions, such as festivals, music clubs, theatres, monuments and beautiful beaches. But let’s not forget that Odessa is also a wonderful crossroad of cultures and an important commercial port. This turns it into the perfect city for conferences, exhibitions and seminars all year round.
Other recommended tourist attractions:
The Mother-In-Law Bridge
The Primorsky Boulevard and Zhvanetsky Boulevard are linked by this obscure pedestrian bridge that has a long and interesting history which begins in the ‘50s when the construction was designed. Supposedly, the purpose of this bridge was to ease the access of the First Secretary of the Odessa Communist Party from his work place to his mother-in-law’s house. Why is this? Because she made the most delicious pancakes ever and he couldn’t resist spending a day without eating them. Some people claim that this story is just an invention designed to attract tourists, but locals are convinced that it is entirely true as the bridge does not serve any actual communication purposes. And if fun is essential on your holiday and you love the thrill of adventure then come here with a group of friends and jump on the bridge. If the weather is windy and you jump strong enough, the bridge starts shaking.
The Odessa’s Catacombs
The most interesting and creepy thing about Odessa is that right under it there lays the world’s largest network of underground catacombs. These measure over 2,500 km in length, are incredibly dark and rich in history. Only a very small part of this mysterious network is opened as a museum. In 19th century were built the first catacombs under Odessa and these were intended as underground quarries, but during World War II, it was uses as a hiding place. Of course, it is not advised to explore them on your own because you could literally get lost over here. You can join organized groups to take a very fascinating tour of the opened sections. At the “Museum of Partisan Glory” in Nerubayskoye, next to Odessa you can take part at an introduction to the world of catacombs.
The Orange’s Monument
Believe it or not, Odessa has a monument dedicated to an orange. Maybe you have heard that Rome was saved by geese so what is so strange about the fact that Odessa was rescued by 4000 oranges? It was back in the 19th century, when Emperor Pavel I took over the Russian Empire after his mother Empress Catherine the Great passed away. He wasn’t convinced that Odessa was the right city for becoming the Empire’s new grand port. This was because the local government had the talent of making most of the funding disappear into the thin air. The new Emperor stopped the financial contributions and that time it seemed that Odessa has destined to become a common provincial town. The genius idea that locals had to saving their beloved city was to send to Pale I a very unexpected and extravagant gift- – 4000 of the best Greek oranges! He was delighted with the present and it made his change his mind. He doubled Odessa’s financial funding and so the development of this port continued. Now, Odessans joke about it and call it the ‘Long live the bribe’ Monument. Another reason for their irony is the recent move of the Orange Monument from the front yard of the city’s council to the more hidden part of the city- Zhvanetsky Boulevard.
The Duke’s Statue
This is an iconic statue for Odessa’s history. Duke de Richelieu was an important politician during the Bourbon Restoration. He was one of the ranking officers in the Imperial Russian Army. In 1803, he was elected Odessa’s governor and he has one of the main personalities that worked actively at developing the city. In only a couple of years h succeeded into turning Odessa into the third largest city in the entire Russian Empire. To repay him for his sustained contributions to the glory and wealth of the city, in 1828 Odessans built this monument. Strategically placed next to the Potemkin Steps, the statue greets the ships that arrive in the harbor. For locals, the Duke’s Statue is one of the most iconic meeting place, both for romantic and business purposes. The funny thing about the statue is that it is an active presence at all festivals hosted by Odessa- on Jazz Days it wear an Ellington costume and on April Fool’s Day it tries on a sailor cap. Superstition is also part of its charm. Touch its bag of money and you’ll make a fortune or simply make a wish at the Duke’s Statue!
The One Wall House
Well, it is no quite a house with one wall, but rather a house without one wall. The thing about this odd construction is that instead of having four walls, it has three. Those travellers who dare to explore the hidden gems of Odessa will be delighted to admire this building. It is fascinating, strange and photogenic so don’t forget to bring your camera. The One Wall House is located on Vorontsov Lane, just a couple of minutes away from the Mother-in-Law Bridge. At first glance, it’s no different than the other endless old, rusty, decadent houses in Odessa, but from the right angle it surprises with the illusion of having just the front wall. Other colorful and fun names given by both locals and travellers to this unique construction are Flat House, Witch’s House and Devil’s House.
The Dniester Delta National Park
To discover and admire the wildlife you simply need to visit the Dniester Delta national Park which has a great international importance. Here there are numerous endangered species, both animals and plants, listed in Ukraine’s and Moldova’s Red Data Book, as well as in the World Conservation Union’s Red List of Threatened Species. One of the most valuable and endangered species has its nest in the wetlands and it is represented by the glossy ibis (Plegadis falcinellus). This piece of paradise is a truly unique traveling experience that simply cannot be missed out.
