Literary Locale: Odessa, Ukraine, Part Two

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.

Where are you reading? Feel free to grab the logo and play along. Don't forget to leave a link to your blog so I can come visit.
