Potemkin Steps

Potemkin steps
 
Built in 1837, the Potemkin Steps are the best place to view the busy harbor and the bay. The Steps with the monument to Duke de Richelieu on the top are one of the beautiful and the most referred in writing symbols of Odessa. There were few writers who visited Odessa and refrained from writing about the stairs, so prominent and captivating they have always been.
Looking down from the top, the steps themselves become invisible, only the landings can be seen. On each side of the stairs there is a stone parapet, and the two appear to run parallel. This, however, is an optical illusion because in reality the width of the stairs of the bottom flight is double that of the top flight.
There is the city’s passenger ship terminal at the bottom of the steps.

Hello, I'm sorry it took me so long to send this note but I wanted to thank everyone involved in making my to Keiv so enjoyable. The apartment was very nice, especially the location, Independance Square is a very beautiful and interesting place, the city of Keiv is amazing, so many pretty girls and wonderful buildings.

The taxi service was very nice also, not being able to speak or read the language, having an english speaking driver (Alex) was really a great help. But the best part of my trip was getting to know about the people of the Ukraine, I must admit that I have not traveled internationally before and I felt very comfortable with the people there, they are truely good and friendly people.

I would reccommend your service to anyone and would urge anyone who might be considering a trip to the Ukraine to go and have a wonderful time, don't worry about communication the people are friendly and will always help you if they can. I hope to use your service again in the future. Thank You.

Sincerely,

Andy, USA
