Virtual walk along Odessa: Part 5
Lets go back and continue our way to the Duma square in which there is a beautiful City Hall, the gun and a monument-fountain to A.S. Pushkin. Every 30 minutes on the hour, the clock, on the building of the City Council, will ring with music.
From the Duma square the way stretches along the sea and here is another wonderful place to relax and walk, Primorskiy Boulevard. Here you can stay for hours, admiring the views of the seaport with vessels, ships and yachts, while enjoying the cool shade and the gentle sea breeze.
Primorskiy Boulevard leads us to a better governor of Odessa and the principal symbol of the city, a monument to Duc de Richelieu. You can find more information about the history of the monument from the article, Odessa. The monument to Richelieu, but I'd add that it is not just a symbol of the city and the historical value, it's his mascot -near it people date and meet, make wishes...
From the Duke offers a beautiful view of the Potemkin Stairs and seaport buildings. The Potemkin Stairs are really impressive for its size, 192 steps, 142 meters in length, and a height of 24 meters. And if you look at the stairs from the very bottom, through the perspective it looks even bigger and grander.
If you have enough time it makes sense to walk by the Potemkin stairs down to the seaport buildings and to bigest hotel Odessa, and walk along its waterfront. There are sculptures of the "Golden Child", a monument to sailors' wives, and the church of Saint Nicholas who is the patron of seafarers. And if you're lucky, in the harbour there will be a big ship the size of some buildings.
