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.
 
Weather
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.

Your service was excellent - speedy and efficient. Everything went well. I will certainly recommend you if any of my friends come to Ukraine, or I have the chance to come back!
