History of Odessa

Odessa has really caught the buzz as of late. New restaurants, bars, clubs, hotels and resorts keep popping up to meet the demand of enthused tourists and adventurers drawn by this fascinating cultural center nestled right up next to the beach. The nightlife and beach clubs of Odessa are well known in the Central and Eastern Europe so that the city is called Ibiza of the Black Sea.
The city was founded in 1794 by Catherine the Great, who realized that a port on the Black Sea was essential for the expansion of the Russian Empire. It was not erected on empty ground, however. Archaeological findings have revealed the existence of an ancient Greek settlement. Unlike many of its contemporary Russian cities, the construction of Odessa was well-planned. The city boomed throughout the 19th century, and attracted an incredibly diverse population. By the beginning of the 20th century, Odessa had become the third most important city in the Russian Empire behind St. Petersburg and Moscow. It continued to thrive during Soviet industrial expansion, and by the mid 1950’s had become one of the world’s richest grain harbors.
