What Are Five Landmarks To Visit In Odessa

In Odessa, Ukraine, there are a bunch of different landmarks to visit, but these are five landmarks one must see to get more out of the culture and heritage of Odessa.

193One nice landmark to visit is the The Statue of Laocoon, which is a monument that showcases Laocoon and his sons strangled by sea serpents. This has a very rich history because it was said that Laocoon was trying to find the fallacy of the Trojan horse. This is one of the few copies that exists other than the original in the Vatican.

It’s the official walkway into the city from the direction of the sea.
