Odessa, Ukraine City Guide: General Information

Location And Population
The city lies on the Black Sea coast in the Bay of Odessa. Odessa occupies territory of 160 sq. km. and has population 1 027 000.
The climate is moderately continental and comparatively dry, with a short mild winter and long hot summer. There are more than 290 sunny days in the year. Since Odessa region is drawn out along the meridian, the climate in the narrow 30-40 km. stretch along the coast is practically ideal, with the soft tang of the sea mixing with the scent of the steppes.

The winter average temperature hovers around freezing. Falling snow and minus 20 Celsius is a really rare occurrence, which is usually replaced by a thaw.

In summer average temperature is 25 Celsius, though in summer daytime can get up over 35 Celsius.

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
