Travel Tips from people who've been to Odesa
Odesa - grad sa dva lica. Jedno,ono pozeljno lice glamura,bogatstva i uspjesnosti koje ti predstavljaju u svakoj turistickoj brosuri ureda za razvoj,i ono drugo koje bi najradije da ga nema,i koje se moze vidjeti samo u Oliver Twist filmovima,koje pustaju u Bozicno vrijeme darivanja,kako bi se svi osjecali ponizno i zahvalno zbog zivota kojeg zivimo. Je li je tako u svakom gradu?Da li je moguce da to do sada nisam vidio...?Ili jednostavno nisam zelio vidjeti... E pa u Odesi jesam... Vidio sam kako se bogataski sinovi ubijaju u alkoholu iz zabave i kako se njihove "djevocke"gledaju preko oka,jer jedna od njih ima skuplju Luis Vuiton torbu od drugih... Vidio sam ljude u prljavim kombinezonima,koji kao vojska zombija ceka na ulaz u tvornicu,kako bi odradili jos koju prekovremenu smjenu.Ljude razocarane u zivot koji se ubijaju u vodki po ulicama siromasne Odese,djecu koja se igraju po ulici napola gola i bosa i sanjaju da ce biti novi Shevcenko.. Ovo drugo lice sam naravno vidio samo iz autobusa,kao da je neka turisticka atrakcija.Smjesno zar ne?Bas sam hrabar. To je ono sta sam ja vidio u Odesi,a za neke turisticke savjete kupite jebeni TRAVEL GUIDE.

In Odessa airport there will be taxi drivers offering you overpriced (in comparison with public transportation) ride to the centre of the city. If you don't want to go with them, you can go in a small bus (marshrutnoe taxi) - the line ends here, so you can enter the bus when it's empty. As for 2010, the only bus number going to the airport is 117, to get to the center of the city (i.e. railway station) it takes over 30 minutes to get there (it doesn't go the shortest way), and cost is 1,75 UAH (paid upon exiting the bus). If you want to get back to the airport the same way, it's best to ask local people to find the nearest street it goes (there are no set stops, basically those buses stop on demand).

Gorgeous architecture and interesting monuments/statues, lots to see and photograph, bright friendly people with distinct humour known around former USSR, lots of eateries and clubs, beaches and salt lakes, catacombes (underground caves built by partisans during WWII), cargo and passenger sea ports, good choice of arts and music events. Hotels were not impressive and hardly luxurous as of 1998, but I hear they've caught up by now. Dangers include pickpockets, bag snatchers, and similar. Transport isn't a breeze but taxis are plentiful. Medical services will be available in abundance but rip-offs are a possibility.
