The cobblestone and tall acacia trees on the Frantsuzsky Boulevard are most reminiscent of Old Odessa. This place was home to Odessa wealthy merchants in the old days. Now the boulevard is one of the most picturesque resort districts in Odessa. The cable car rides from the Boulevard down to the Lanzheron Beach. It is fun and costs less than $5.
The steep hill parts the Frantsuzsky Boulevard from 3 beaches beneath. Paths and stairs lead downhill to the sea shore through a green zone closed to vehicle traffic. It is a favorite sight for picnics.
The itinerary I planned on my trip to Ukraine was quite complicated, covering diverse parts of the county. Unipress not only anticipated all my needs, it was sensitive to my desires and flexible in cheerfully providing just the services I requested and no more, making the trip flawless from the first train ride to the final escort to the airport. Tanya, Igor and their staff are caring as well as competent and reliable It's a joy to work with them and I can highly recommend their services.
