Today, I'm taking you back to Odessa, Ukraine, the city that Catherine the Great (who was featured in The Winter Palace) built. Part one of Literary Locale: Odessa can be found here.
|Another very European part of Odessa: a grand promenade.|
|Here's another picture of the Catherine the Great statue. These guys around the base of the statues were all her lovers at some point. Scandalous!|
|One of the main parks in Odessa. A lovely place for a walk.|
|One of the gorgeous Orthodox churches. Those onion domes are unreal in real life!|
|At the top of the Ptolekin steps with a fantastic view of the Hotel Odessa, a very fancy hotel, and the Black Sea.|
