Odessa, Ukraine City Guide

Odessa In Brief
Founded in 1794 by Katherine the Second with the purpose of establishing a mighty seaport, fortifying southern borders of the Russian Empire, Odessa has surpassed Her Majesty expectations.

Soon Odessa has become one of the biggest and wealthiest cities of Russia. Attracted by Porto Franco business conditions and benevolent climate, migrants and merchants from European and Asian countries, made a beautiful and prosperous home in Odessa. Since then the city was doomed to flourish, thanks to good business sense, positive and optimistic vision and sharp wit of its inhabitants.

Neither bureaucrats, nor wars or famine, even Soviet regime, could not exterminate a special spirit of the city.

Nowadays it is one of the biggest cities and largest seaport of Ukraine. City population is 1027000 persons. Odessa has well developed business, travel and entertainment infrastructure and is deservedly popular for travel and business alike.

Igor,

Thank you for your help last week when Svetlana and I needed to make some
last minute arrangements to go to Kiev, I find Ukraine can be very
frustrating at times, but your service was second to none, unhurried, calm
and very, very professional.

I greatly enjoyed meeting with your brother Feodore, in Kiev, and have to
say his friendliness and attention to detail was equal to your own, and the
apartment was excellent for convenience, comfort and value. Please pass on
my thanks and kind regards to him.

Finally I was most impressed with the service, when our tickets were a
little later than promised, that I had two telephone calls during that time
to keep me informed before Natalya arrived with everything arranged and in
good order.

Again thank you, and please feel free to use any extract from this email as
a reference to your excellent efficiency and friendliness.

Kind regards Paul T. Raggett UK April 2002
