The cobblestone and tall acacia trees on the Frantsuzsky Boulevard are most reminiscent of Old Odessa. This place was home to Odessa wealthy merchants in the old days. Now the boulevard is one of the most picturesque resort districts in Odessa. The cable car rides from the Boulevard down to the Lanzheron Beach. It is fun and costs less than $5.
The steep hill parts the Frantsuzsky Boulevard from 3 beaches beneath. Paths and stairs lead downhill to the sea shore through a green zone closed to vehicle traffic. It is a favorite sight for picnics.
When I began planning my trip to Odessa I knew nothing about travel to Europe let alone Eastern Europe. Some of the stories I had heard and read made me a little nervous but when I found Unipress BTD all my worries were handled for me with a personal touch I'm not accustomed to in the US. I found Odessa a wonderful and beautiful city. I have been to Odessa twice now and both times with first rate service and no problems, I could never ask for better service at a very reasonable price. My next trip to Odessa will begin with an E-mail to Tanya and Igor. Thanks for the help in making my trips a success.
