Odessa is one of the Slavic world's cultural centers of art, architecture, performance, and literature and is the most important city on the Black Sea. It is the location of the Potemkin Steps, notable for events of 1905 when the Czarist military attacked locals who were protesting in support of the mutinous crew of the Battleship Potemkin. The events of the time are dramatically portrayed in the Eisenstein silent film classic, The Battleship Potemkin. The city is a panorama of beautiful buildings like the Opera House and the Uspensky and Spaso-Preobrazhenskiy Cathedrals. Like Sevastopol, there are also a significant number of memorials and monuments of military significance, such as the Shevchenko Park which honors the sacrifices make during World War II. The monument is continuously guarded by teenage schoolchildren dressed and carrying rifles. Odessa also has the most varied shopping of any port you will visit in the Black Sea.

The major attractions and shopping areas of Odessa are very compact in the Primorsky District.
