When vacationing on the beaches of Odesa, you need to follow safety rules.

  • if a storm has started that is rated more than 2 points
  • outside of swimming areas
  • on piers, traverses, breakwaters and other coastal structures

The Odesa Regional Military Administration is in control of this process. Only those coastlines where there are shelters nearby will be opened.

  • Botanical Garden of the National University

A huge number of exhibits from all over the world are presented here. The park is home to over 3000 species of plants. It was founded back in 1867, and it flourished quietly until the Second World War. However, with the outbreak of hostilities, the botanical garden was severely damaged. Unfortunately, only a few representatives of the flora were preserved. After 1945, the restoration of the reserve began. Today it is a part of the natural fund of Ukraine.

The complex of architectural monuments is located on the edge of a plateau. It includes the Vorontsov Palace, the Former Exchange and Zavadovskyi Houses.
