Pictures from Odessa


Today, I´ll let the pictures do the talking. Like I said before, Odessa is often portrayed with pictures from the Opera House or from the Potemkin stairs. Here are a few other spots in the city, taken in order for you to be able to get a taste of Odessa. I normally try to clean the pictures up a bit in Lightroom before publishing them but this time I haven´t done anything with them except changing format. A couple of the pictures are taken with my cell phone.

A few short facts about the city. Odessa was founded on September 2, 1794. It´s highest point is 65 metres above sea level. The city´s population is just over a million people. From a Swedish perspective it´s interesting to know that Alfred Nobel´s brothers were here in the end of the 19th century, dealing with oil. It´s estimated that about an eight of the Nobel fortune, which of course is the foundation for the annual Nobel prizes, comes from the Nobel brother´s business in and around the Black Sea.

Anyway, here. A few pictures from Odessa.
