Odessa is Ukraine's sea gate
The foundation of Odessa took place in an atmosphere of endless intrigue. The subject of the dispute, which lasted for half a century, was the choice of location for construction of the city and harbor. The proposal of the founder of Odessa De Ribas, built a port in the "wide open" a wide bay which looks foolish from a military point of view. In terms of trade it's spacious and easily accessible Hadzibeevsky Bay provided a great opportunity. Despite all the "pros" and "cons" the project on August 22, 1794 solemnly laid the foundation of the city, the foundation of the port, shipyard, two piers and two churches in the name of the patron of seafarers St. Nicholas and St. Catherine. For 200 years, it has grown in all respects unique to a port city, known worldwide as the southern sea gate of a great empire.
